Neglect Is Preventable—We Can Help Stop It

In our experience, our Greenville nursing home abuse lawyers find far too many nursing home facilities that are run by off-site corporate directors who sacrifice safety for the sake of profit margins. From their cushy corporate offices, they order the reduction of staff and resources in order to decrease overhead expenses and keep more of the income from the facility as profit, rather than use it for the benefit of the residents as intended.

Costs are cut without regard for consequences, which could include:

  • Dehydration/weight loss
  • Pressure ulcers/bedsores
  • Slips and falls
  • Medication errors
  • Amputation
  • Choking accidents
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sepsis leading to kidney complications or failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Residents wandering off without supervision

This type of negligence should not go on! We are here to be the voice for those who don’t have one in courtrooms and negotiation rooms. Because Christian & Davis LLC has a legal nurse consultant on staff, we have direct access to a professional who has a comprehensive understanding of these types of legal matters. Call on us if you’ve believe negligence is occurring at your loved one’s nursing home.

Standing Up for Injured Nursing Home Residents

Our Christian values influence our law practice, as we take our responsibilities seriously and use our talents and skills to help vulnerable people who have been neglected in nursing homes. Our experience and knowledge enable us to recognize and pinpoint causes of injury and preventable illness or death in a long-term care facility. Ask yourself the questions below if you suspect negligence:

  • Does staff fail to respond to calls for help from residents or their family members?
  • Does staff fail to turn patients on a regular basis?
  • Are residents habitually soiled?
  • Is there evidence of dehydration, weight loss, bedsores, or pressure ulcers among residents?
  • Have you seen or heard of falls or unexplained cuts or bruises?
  • Is there a history of elopement (wandering off) by residents of the facility?
  • If your family member is already in residence, has he or she had a urinary tract infection?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you may have the grounds to file a nursing home negligence or abuse claim.
