It can be a difficult and daunting process to identify an assisted living facility that meets your requirements and an elderly loved one's needs. Unfortunately, not all care facilities provide the level of care that elderly residents deserve.
If an elderly parent or loved one has been abused, neglected or injured while living at an assisted living facility, you may have legal recourse against the care provider. At the law firm of Colucci Colucci Marcus & Flavin, PC, we provide caring representation to assisted living residents and their families. To learn more, contact a Boston assisted living facility negligence lawyer from our firm today.
Take Legal Action at the First Sign of Abuse or Neglect
When placing a loved one in an assisted living facility, you should expect nothing less than high-quality care. When a nursing home or assisted living facility fails to provide adequately for your loved one, it is advisable to talk to a lawyer about the situation. In fact, it is important to talk to a lawyer at the first sign of abuse or neglect. Protecting your loved one's health, safety and well-being is of critical importance.
Understaffing and inadequate training are two leading causes of assisted living facility negligence. When there are not enough care providers to accommodate residents' needs, or when staff has not been properly trained, residents will likely not receive the quality of care they need. This could result in medication errors, dehydration, malnutrition, bedsores and even wrongful death. Get in touch with an attorney if your loved one has experienced any of these signs of abuse or neglect.
