Nursing Home Abuse

Georgia Nursing Home Abuse Law Firm Fights Against Mistreatment

Stone Mountain attorneys protecting seniors’ rights to safe, effective healthcare

Most nursing homes offer effective round-the-clock medical assistance in a compassionate, wholesome environment. When that care turns to abuse, however, the consequences can be devastating. Unethical nursing home staff prey upon the vulnerable and the frail. Compounding the problem, some patients have no family to witness the abuse or they suffer from ailments that prevent them from speaking out. Jason & Bradley, LLC helps victims of nursing home abuse obtain safe, effective healthcare and receive compensation for injuries suffered at the hands of negligent or malevolent nursing home staff.

Rights under the Nursing Home Reform Act

The 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act (NHRA) established a minimum standard of care for all patients receiving care in nursing home facilities. Prior to passage of this landmark legislation, nursing facilities and care were largely unregulated. Unfortunately, abuse still continues. NHRA states that each resident should enjoy these basic rights while living in a nursing home facility:

  • Dignified existence
  • Self-determination
  • Privacy
  • Communication with people inside and outside the facility
  • Access to services
  • Freedom from physical abuse and neglect
  • Protection from misappropriation of property
  • Accommodation of medical, physical, psychological, and social needs
  • Freedom to file a complaint if rights are violated

We do not tolerate violation of patients’ rights. We demand compensation for their injuries, their movement to a safe place, punishment of individuals who are engaging in abuse and the immediate remedy of violations at the nursing home facility.

Importance of reporting nursing home violations

If you or a loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, it is vital that you report it. One incident of abuse usually represents a pattern of abusive behavior. If one patient is being victimized, most likely others are too. By exposing abuse you can help other vulnerable patients while protecting yourself and your loved ones.
