Nursing Home Neglect

Columbus Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys

If you are concerned about the medical care received by a loved one in a nursing home, contact the lawyers at Daughtery, Crawford & Brown, LLP in Columbus, Georgia for a free initial consultation. Sometimes physical injuries or trips to an emergency room are signs of nursing home neglect or abuse.

Some of the most common injuries our lawyers see in nursing home cases are bed sores (sometimes called pressure sores, decubitus ulcers, or pressure sores). Bed sores often develop on patients who are bed-ridden or immobilized in a wheelchair. If the patient is not moved or repositioned regularly by nursing home staff, bed sores can develop on the patient's heels, elbows, tail bone, buttocks, or other parts of the body. These sores are very dangerous, can be difficult to treat, and can lead to serious infection and even death.

Other types of nursing home injures include:

  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Broken bones from repeated falls
  • Wandering (sometimes called "elopement")
  • Medication errors
  • Physical and sexual abuse of patients

Many cases of nursing home negligence can be traced to deliberate under staffing to cut costs. The sooner you contact one of our lawyers, the sooner we can request medical records and interview nursing home staff members to determine what happened to your loved one. Sometimes, the only way to hold the nursing home accountable and prevent similar injuries to other people is by filing a civil lawsuit.
