Sometimes, communicating with caregivers at the first indication of mistreatment can prevent future occurrences, however in other instances, the neglect continues and the only way to stop it is to involve a nursing home abuse lawyer, David Heil.
Why Does Nursing Home Neglect Occur?
There is no excuse for nursing homes to fail in their obligations to meet a basic standard of care. Unfortunately, many Orlando area facilities are understaffed and overcrowded, and their staff members are overextended and simply unable to watch over all their patients while performing the other duties required of them. In addition, frail, elderly people are particularly vulnerable to neglect and abuse precisely because they are frail and elderly and often don’t have the physical ability to report abuse or are too confused or humiliated to do so.
