The Warning Signs

If you or a loved one is in an assisted living facility, nursing home, or hospice please be aware of the following warning signs of nursing home neglect or abuse:

  • Bedsores
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Medication issues
  • Unexplained wounds (such as bruises or abrasions) or infections
  • Frequent falls from a bed, steps, or stairs
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • A resident's reluctance to report caregiver offenses

If you observe unexplained bruising, bedsores, open wounds, or any other suspect condition in a loved one it could be due to nurse negligence, improper restraint usage, or negligent safety procedures. Contact Schrempf, Kelly, Napp & Darr, Ltd. to discuss your concerns.

Family Members Can Help

Often a nursing home or hospice patient is too sick to stand up for themselves against abuse and neglect. Additionally, the patient may not tell anyone about mistreatment because they don't want to bother family and friends with their problems. If you have a loved one in a nursing home and suspect abuse or neglect you should ask questions of your loved one and maintain a constant, watchful eye on their physical condition and environment. If you have serious concerns you should contact our nursing home abuse personal injury lawyers at Schrempf, Kelly, Napp & Darr, Ltd., right away.

Reliable testimony from victims of nursing home abuse or neglect can be difficult to obtain. Often the victims are elderly and too sick to testify which poses a unique and difficult legal task. Meanwhile, unscrupulous nursing home owners and operators will fight hard to defend their businesses and hide employee offenses.

Unfortunately for them, our skilled personal injury lawyers at Schrempf, Kelly, Napp & Darr, Ltd., welcome such challenges. We have fought and prevailed in many cases of nursing home abuse.

We have 25 years of experience, a multitude of resources, and keen familiarity with the nursing home industry.
