Appleton Nursing Home Neglect Attorney

For many people, the idea of elderly parents and relatives suffering from abuse and neglect is unthinkable and difficult to deal with. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect can occur if a facility does not adequately hire or train its staff, or if it is not appropriately equipped to handle the needs of its patients.

If a resident of a nursing home suffers an injury due to neglect or abuse, he or she may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, mental and emotional trauma, and other damages. If your loved one has been hurt by a medication error, neglect, slip-and-fall accident, or other event caused by the negligence of nursing home staff, contact the Appleton nursing home neglect attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 today.

Common Causes of Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home neglect often stems from:

  • Failure on the part of nursing home management to hire enough employees to give the proper care to patients
  • Failure to hire staff with the appropriate experience to handle patient’s needs
  • Lack of proper training for staff members
  • Failure to provide promised services

In many cases, residents of nursing homes have specific care needs that their loved ones cannot provide. Residents have a reasonable expectation of their caregivers to provide the services outlined by the facility or their specific care plan, and failure to do so may result in charges of negligence.
