It can be a difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home. Apart from the emotional aspects of such a decision, it can be very challenging to choose a home that you feel will meet the needs of your loved one. After they have begun staying at their nursing home, it is important that your loved one continue to receive the level of care you expected them to when you originally made that decision.
To honor your sense of duty to your loved one, it is important to remain abreast of the quality of care that they are receiving. Unannounced visits and regular contact can help ensure that your loved one is cared for in the manner they deserve.

Some of the more common signs of abuse or neglect in a nursing home include:
- Decubitus ulcers
- Weight loss
- Bruising or other indicators of injury
- Unsanitary conditions
We also offer our representation to those with loved ones in acute care facilities. When a patient has surgery and needs to rehabilitate after the surgery acute rehabilitation facilities often are a reasonable option. The care that a patient receives while rehabilitating after a successful surgery is critical to the long-term success of the treatment. Often, patients are not provided with safe or proper care during these short stay rehabilitation admissions. Under such occasions, the patient can develop life threatening infections or falls that can compromise the outcome of the surgery and the future health of the patient.
