5 Things You Should Do If You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse

Something seems wrong with a loved one living in a nursing home. What should you do? We strongly recommend taking the following five steps to protect your loved one's health - and their rights.

  1. Report it - Tell the nursing home your concerns. If possible, do it writing and keep a copy for yourself. That way, you have a record of your complaint, just in case the nursing home later tries to claim it didn't know anything was wrong.
  2. Document it - Take photos of whatever's wrong with your loved one. If they have bruises on their arms, take a picture. The same goes for unsanitary living conditions or evidence of malnutrition.
  3. Get medical help - Make sure a doctor sees your loved one immediately. If you think their life could be in danger, call 911 and demand they send an ambulance as soon as possible. There's no room for error when it comes to caring for a loved one's health.
  4. Interview witnesses - Odds are other people living in the same facility noticed something wrong with your loved one. Talk to them and find out what they saw. Witness testimony can be critical in such cases. But if you're not comfortable doing this on your own, simply skip to the next step...
  5. Contact us - We know how to handle the toughest nursing home abuse and neglect cases. We know what evidence to look for, what questions to ask and how the find the facts nursing homes don't want you to know. And if they don't cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court and do whatever it takes to win your case.
