Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers Serving Northwest Indiana
Put 100+ Years of Combined Experience in Your Corner
While many nursing home caregivers perform their duties admirably, an intolerable number of elderly individuals suffer abuse and neglect at the hands of professionals who do not always realize — or care — how their actions impact their patients. Physical, verbal, and emotional abuse or neglect in any form is unacceptable, and the attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. pledge to protect the rights of nursing home inhabitants.
Our Northwest Indiana nursing home negligence lawyers have in-depth knowledge of state and federal laws in place to prevent elder abuse and neglect, such as the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987. Our team can help you begin the process of investigating abuse and filing a claim against a facility or caregiver.
We walk clients through the process of reporting a complaint to the Department of Health’s Division of Long Term Care and all related tasks prior to initiating a lawsuit. We understand the stressful and emotional nature of reporting nursing home negligence and are respectful of your feelings in every meeting, including your complimentary consultation.
To get started, call (219) 212-2462. We are
ready to help you and your elderly loved one.
Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
Unfortunately, the signs of nursing home negligence can be difficult to identify, and residents may be afraid or unwilling to voice objections for fear of retribution from their caregivers. As such, it is important for friends and family members to continually search for signs of mistreatment, including:
- Pressure sores
- Neglect and abuse
- Wandering or elopement
- Open wounds, cuts, bruises or welts
- Compulsive aggression
- Emotionally erratic behavior
- Unexplained injuries
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Suspicious falls
Other common signs of abuse or neglect include staff members refusing to allow residents to see or be alone with their visitors, or uncommonly long delays between when a visitor arrives and when they are able to see the nursing home resident.
