“The strength of our society should be judged by the quality of care rendered to our youngest, sickest, and oldest citizens, being that they aren’t able to care for themselves.”
Nursing homes play an important role in our society, providing care to family members during the time of their greatest needs. As a result, many families select a nursing home or an assisted living facility to provide medical care for their aging loved one when these needs can no longer be met at home. In doing, these families trust these facilities to provide the level of dignity and compassion that their loved one deserves. Unfortunately, some elderly and disabled individuals in these facilities suffer unspeakable neglect and abuse on a daily basis. Such neglect and abuse can result in horrendous injuries and even death.
Actions against Nursing Homes are complex and require an in-depth understanding of not only the law, but also the applicable medical and nursing standards. The attorneys at Mayo|Hill are well versed in these standards and have a proven track record of achieving justice on behalf of our clients.
