What To Watch Out For In Nursing Homes

If your parents or other loved ones are unable to care for themselves, you may have made the difficult decision to entrust them to an Ohio nursing home or assisted living facility. You may have had to scrape together your family’s resources to pay for the exorbitant cost of services. Yet sadly, not all care facilities truly care.

If your loved one has received substandard care, turn to Rumizen Weisman Attorneys, in Cleveland. Follow these steps if you suspect nursing home abuse or neglect, and contact our attorneys. Our seasoned trial lawyers have a 40-year track record of success representing victims of nursing home injuries across the state.

Cost-Cutting Measures Are Dangerous

The sad truth is that nursing homes are for-profit businesses, so they do what they can to maximize profit and minimize expenses.

When a facility cuts expenses, the quality of care often suffers. This can lead to many types of elder abuse and neglect and a wide array of problems at nursing homes, including:

  • Injuries from falls
  • Choking on food
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Diabetic comas or renal failure
  • Bedsores/pressure ulcers
  • Elopement/wandering off

We also represent adults and minors who have been injured at group homes due to abuse or neglect.
