The Representation You Need The Recovery You Deserve

California Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Put 35+ Years of Experience in Your Corner

According to the 2010 United States Census, 11.7% of the population in Modesto is over the age of 65 years. Many of these people live in nursing homes, and in fact, the California Office of the Attorney General reports that there are more than 300,000 people living in the 1,700 nursing homes throughout the state.

Despite the fact that the residents are entrusted to the care and supervision of the staff of these nursing homes, the Attorney General estimates that 225,000 cases of elder abuse occur on a yearly basis. If you or your elderly loved one has been abused or neglected by nursing home employees, our Modesto nursing home abuse attorneys can help you seek justice and recover compensation for their injuries.

Resident's Rights in Nursing Homes

California has passed several laws in an effort to reduce abuse and neglect happening in nursing homes. These laws clearly define resident's rights the obligation that every nursing home must follow. Title 22 specifies how nursing homes must treat their resident's and the services they provide to them. These rights include:

  • Assistance in maintaining personal hygiene if needed
  • The right to proper nutrition
  • Safe living accommodations
  • Access to dental and medical care

Similarly, California states that every resident of a nursing home has the right to a certain standard of care. This also means that residents have the freedom, among others, to transfer or discharge if they would like, have visitors, and have a right to privacy and confidentiality. If a resident lacks the ability to understand their rights their representative must be made aware of them

Unreported Abuse in California

Nursing home abuse is common, but the victims often suffer in silence. According to the organization California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, for every reported case of abuse, 23.5 go unreported. Often this is a result of the fact that the victim is too embarrassed or ashamed to speak out.

In other cases, the reason is that the resident is being actively intimidated with threats of violent reprisals if he or she complains or seeks help. If you have reason to believe that your elderly family member may be a victim of abuse at the hands of nursing home staff, you cannot afford to hesitate in taking action to investigate the situation before it is too late to do anything. Our California nursing home abuse lawyers are ready to fight for you!

Examples of Nursing Home Abuse

Elder abuse takes many forms, but every single one of them is degrading and a violation of the victim's human decency.

It may occur as the following:

  • Neglect: Leaving the resident isolated and malnourished
  • Verbal / Emotional Abuse: The use of derogatory language and humiliating treatment
  • Physical Abuse: Hitting, kicking, or strangling
  • Sexual Assault
  • Strapped to a bed or given "chemical restraint
