Not all nursing home caretakers live up to the high standards you expect when you entrust your parents or other loved ones to their care. Elder care in Florida is a big business often operated by huge corporations.
Hiring top quality staff is challenging. It is not unusual for our elder abuse attorneys to hear cases where the nursing home staff becomes impatient or ignores the elderly in their care or even become punishing and rough using physical violence and psychological abuse and shame. The elderly cannot defend themselves, they often feel trapped and believe if they complain, things will only get worse.
Abuse and neglect of the elderly takes many forms. Does your caretaker allow poor sanitation issues which can make someone ill or even cause wrongful death? Verbal threats can be delivered as a manner of control and coercion. Are your elderly loved ones allowed to be active? Are they unfairly restrained, neglected or even publicly shamed? There are bullies working in the nursing home system. Do not let your loved ones suffer in their care.
