Despite your best efforts to ensure your loved ones is being properly cared for, you may learn that they have become the victim of Kentucky nursing home abuse. If your loved one suffered serious injuries as a result, then you should speak with a Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer to learn what you can do next.
Here are 5 ways Kentucky nursing home abuse can be reduced or prevented:
- improvement of working conditions for caregivers and others who work with the elderly;
- better training, increased recognition and greater respect for caregivers;
- improvement of screening process for those who will be working in a nursing home facility;
- talking to your loved one about their care; and
- enforcing compliance with nursing home laws.
Elder abuse can lead to physical and psychological damage. When a caregiver or nursing home facility fails to care for a resident properly, then the facility or caregiver can be held liable. You could be entitled to compensation that addresses all of the losses and injuries your loved one has sustained.
One of the ways that efforts are being made to protect residents of nursing homes is through the Elder Justice Act. While laws can help, they may not necessarily stop your loved one from becoming the victim of Kentucky nursing home abuse. Talk to a Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer about your case.
