Nursing Home Abuse in Port Orange

When a loved one comes of age, friends and family members take great care when it comes to selecting a nursing home facility. We want to know that those who matter most to us are going to receive the best possible care as their lifespan reaches the golden years, especially if those loved ones took great care for us and helped us to grow into the successful adults that we are today. As we choose a nursing home for our loved ones, it is our expectation that we are choosing a facility in good confidence, one that will administer adequate and conscientious care to our loved ones.

A nursing home facility is held to a standard of care that ensures that the medical and nursing professionals employed at the facility will perform their duties to care for and protect the safety of the residents with the utmost diligence. Unfortunately, these terms are often violated, more often than we realize or may want to know. Abuse and negligence often occur within a nursing home facility, leading to conditions such as malnourishment, and to the serious or sometimes fatal injury of the patient.

If you or a loved one resides in a nursing home in the State of Florida, you have rights that you may not be aware of. You have the right to have your individual dignity maintained and to be respected by those placed in charge of your care. If a nursing home facility violates the standard of care, the facility can be held responsible. When a patient has been victimized and injury or death occurs, the patient or the patient’s family is entitled to make a claim for damages. These damages can also include punitive damages for the emotional pain and suffering of the victim or the victim’s family.

At Rue & Ziffra, Port Orange nursing home abuse attorneys, we understand the need for our loved ones to be kept safe and to be well taken care of, and we understand the devastation that the victims of nursing home abuse and their families suffer when these expectations are violated. We care about the residents of our community and want to see the health and wellness of our elders maintained to the highest standard. We are on your side, and here to fight for your rights. Give us a call today. We are here for you, 24/7, to meet your needs and to answer any questions you may have about your case.

Nursing Home Neglect

nursing-home

Our loving, caring, grandmother, grandfather, or even elderly mother or father, lying on a hospital bed, alone and neglected by those in whose care she has been entrusted. It’s not a thought anyone of us wants to have. In fact, our loved ones being left to fend for themselves against negligent doctors or nurses would make anyone cringe or redden with anger. But the reality of the matter is, that neglect in nursing homes happens all too often, and what a tragic and devastating reality it is.

Whether or not a nurse or doctor puts his or her hands on a patient, nursing home neglect can have similar emotionally traumatizing effects for the patient as being physically abused. However, the harm that comes to the patient when he or she is physically abused is intentional, whereas nursing home neglect can happen without the intent of the nurse or doctor in charge. The neglect must, however, involve a breach of duty with foreseeable consequences.

At Rue and Ziffra, we care about you and your family, and that includes those loved ones who cannot care for or fend for themselves. That’s where we come in. We will defend you and your family when you are unable to do so yourself. We will be the voice for those who have lost theirs. When you need help, and you call our offices, you will talk to an actual member of our team, not a call center. When you contact Rue and Ziffra, we are here for you, and you can reach us anytime, day or night. If you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home neglect, let us be your voice. Give us a call today.
