Nursing Home Abuse

Columbia Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

An overwhelming epidemic facing our nation today is nursing home abuse, and the state of South Carolina is no different. Our South Carolina nursing home abuse attorneys can help.

Abuse to the elderly is experienced in disturbing numbers each year; with some cases resulting in physical harm, emotional harm or even death of loved ones. Each day, elderly loved ones are at risk of abuse in nursing homes and assisted living facilities where injury, intimidation or punishment results in their physical injury, pain or sometimes mental anguish.

When our loved ones can no longer take care of themselves and the care they need is beyond our reach, a nursing home or assisted living facility can be a great option for their daily care. Trusting that your loved one is going to be taken care of is important, but it isn’t something you can always rely on. Nursing home abuse can sometimes be difficult to recognized, as your loved ones may already be vulnerable, frail and unable to effectively communicate. Their physical condition can also make it difficult to protect themselves and so many nursing home abuse cases go unreported every year because of these reasons and many more. There are many different factors that can play into creating a situation where nursing home abuse is the result; however, no reason or factor is an excuse for harming an elderly person.
