All nursing home residents deserve close supervision and medical care as well as protection from harm. If you suspect an elderly loved one is suffering from neglect or abuse in a nursing home, call Rinehardt Law Firm. We are a local law firm led by a team of experienced attorneys. Our team is available to handle cases of nursing home neglect injuries in Mansfield, Ohio and the surrounding areas.

Your Loved One May Feel Helpless

Nursing home residents are often unable to communicate when staff is ignoring, mistreating, or abusing them. We can help you protect your vulnerable family member and pursue compensation for the suffering and losses endured because of a nursing home's negligence. Our legal team understands the signs and causes of a range of such cases, including:

  • Neglect injuries: Unsupervised elderly residents are much more likely to fall and suffer from a broken hip, pressure sores (bedsores), or ulcers. Neglect can also result in dehydration and malnutrition, which can prove fatal. Understaffing is not an adequate excuse for your loved one's suffering.
  • Medication errors: Providing elderly people with incorrect medications or doses, or forgetting to give them medications, can result in serious medical consequences.
  • Abuse: Nursing home facilities have a duty to protect residents' safety, and they are responsible for hiring qualified staff. A vulnerable person should never suffer physical abuse or sexual assault because a facility failed to conduct employee background checks.

Though your loved one may feel helpless in such a situation, there are steps you can take to understand what they are going through. One such step is to contact a team of experienced attorneys when you first suspect nursing home negligence or abuse. They can use their knowledge to help you determine what your loved one is going through and help you decide on a plan of action.
