Zion, IL Nursing Home Attorneys

If you or someone you know is spending time in a nursing home, you should be able to expect quality care from those who work there. Unfortunately, this is sometimes not the case, as some facilities don’t take as much time to hire a competent staff. In cases like these, it’s important to be able to discuss problems with a nursing home abuse attorney. If you’re not sure whether what you’ve noticed constitutes abuse, here are a few signs.

Unreasonable Restraint

Nursing homes are supposed to use discretion when using patient restraints and use them only when absolutely necessary. Excessive or unnecessary use is a sign that something is wrong, and if this has happened to you or someone you care about, contact a Zion nursing home lawyer for further advice about how to manage your case.

Sexual Harassment

Nursing home residents may be more vulnerable to sexual harassment due to a few different factors. There is pressure on them not to speak up if something is wrong because they don’t want to upset the nursing home directors and they may be ashamed, and they may not have as strong a support system as would be ideal. If a resident’s family is far away or has limited contact, the resident may feel as though no one will back them up. Unfortunately, some staff members take advantage of these vulnerabilities. Contact a nursing home abuse attorney immediately if this has been the experience that you or someone you love has endured.

Financial Exploitation

For some of the same reasons as sexual harassment, nursing home residents may fall prey to financial exploitation while staying in a nursing facility. Caregivers may manipulate people into trading money for preferential treatment or special privileges, or they may get the resident to change the terms of his or her will to include a staff member. If someone you know has complained of money gone missing or being manipulated, make sure to discuss the issue with a Zion nursing home lawyer.
