Berwyn, IL Nursing Home Attorneys

In regards to nursing home care, it’s not unreasonable for you and your loved ones to expect high-quality care from compassionate employees when staying in one. While this is usually the case, there are sometimes circumstances that require the help of a nursing home neglect lawyer. Their skill and experience can help you sort through the details of your case and choose the best course of action for proceeding. In case you are not sure what constitutes nursing home neglect or abuse, here are a few signs to keep an eye out for.


Bedsores, or pressure ulcers, are caused when patients are left unattended for too long. They are preventable and the development or worsening of existing pressure ulcers can be a sign of nursing home neglect. Whether they are caused by nurses being overworked, understaffing, or simple carelessness, they can cause serious health problems and shouldn’t be ignored. If bedsores are an issue for you or someone you know in a Berwyn nursing home, contact a Berwyn nursing home attorney for help on what to do next.

Unexplained Falls

When nursing home grounds aren’t kept uncluttered or well-maintained, residents may experience preventable slips and falls. This is another sign of neglect, as the residents shouldn’t become injured due to facility management failing to ensure safety. A nursing home neglect lawyer has experience dealing with cases related to unexplained or preventable falls, so if this has happened, you may want to consider talking to one.

Unreasonable Restraint

Restraints should not be used on nursing home residents unless it’s absolutely necessary. However, that’s not always the case when staff do employ the use of either physical or chemical restraints. This sort of situation should not be ignored, and if someone you know tells you they’ve experienced it, a Berwyn nursing home attorney will be able to assist you in moving forward with a case.
