Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse in NJ

Assisted living abuse and neglect are common in New Jersey and, unfortunately, throughout the entire country. A recent report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services revealed approximately 90 percent of nursing homes are cited for deficiencies, and 30 percent of these citations occur annually. If it can be proven that a nursing home or its employees have acted negligently, they may be held liable. Damages may include compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, disability, and disfigurement.

Nursing home abuse typically occurs due to unfortunate circumstances such as sub-par training, understaffing, or lacking quality personnel. In fact, 90 percent of nursing homes have employee rates too low to provide patients with quality care, according to the federal government. There are federal and state laws that provide nursing home residents with Residents’ Rights, which guarantee a standard of life while in the nursing home.

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, verbal or emotional abuse, financial abuse, and neglect. Some of the most common nursing home injuries include:

What to Look for When it Comes to Nursing Home Abuse

If you are uncertain whether nursing home abuse or neglect is occurring, but you have your suspicions, there are several warning signs you can look out for, including:

If your loved one has suffered any of these injuries or if you have noticed any of these warning signs, they may very well be a victim of nursing home abuse or caregiver negligence. Although elder care abuse occurs frequently, only 20 percent of victims seek legal counsel for their damages. Victims may be physically unable to relay the message that abuse has occurred. They are also quite embarrassed and feel they have no choice but to take it.

What’s worse, most families fear the facility’s reaction to the accusation of abuse. Perhaps you feel like there is no other place your loved one can live. By obtaining an experienced New Jersey nursing home abuse lawyer, you will be best able to discern the precise cause of your loved one’s abuse, seek justice for the abuse by filing a nursing home lawsuit, and better your loved one’s living and health situation.
