Nursing Home Abuse

If your loved one was hurt in a nursing home, we want to hear your story. No two cases are alike, and having an experienced lawyer analyze your potential case is critical to protecting your rights.

Indiana Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

With nearly 40,000 residents in nursing home facilities across Indiana, there are a growing number of examples that point to poorly trained staff and lack of professional oversight as the reason for the mistreatment of our elderly loved ones.

When you select a nursing home for a parent, or loved one, you expect them to receive around-the-clock care for their condition. Too often, however, families are shocked to learn this is not the case.

Attorney Boulton has spoken to many clients whose parents suffered injury due to nursing home neglect, abandonment, or physical abuse. If you suspect your loved one has been injured in a residential facility, you should contact an Indiana nursing home abuse lawyer to learn about your legal options.

Why You Must Pay Close Attention

Nursing home residents are often in poor health, and given their physical and/or mental state, are rarely unable to fight back, leaving them highly vulnerable to dangerous conditions. Left unreported or unchecked, nursing home abuse can easily result in injuries that cause physical symptoms, depression, and even death.

It is also not uncommon to learn that an abused resident was also being threatened or intimidated by staff to not say anything. With this in mind, if you have the smallest suspicion that your loved one may be receiving poor care, it is critical that you speak up.

Common Signs of Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

In addition to the obvious signs of mistreatment such as broken bones, bed sores, dehydration, and/or death, a large number of nursing home abuse symptoms can often be much more subtle.

Below is a list of symptoms signaling abuse which can lead to tragic consequences:

  • Comments and statements from your loved one about poor care or treatment (first and most obvious sign).
  • Change in behavior or mood.
  • Confusion or unwillingness to talk openly (this can signal physical or sexual abuse).
  • Lack of concern for appearance, or poor personal hygiene.
  • Bumps and/or bruising.
  • Loss of appetite or refusing to eat.
  • Not taking part or showing an interest in activities.
  • Incontinence (this can often be induced by emotional stress).
  • No matter the type of injuries or symptom, remember, the number one key to preventing poor care of your loved one is being vigilant and reporting any suspicions or perceived mistreatment.
