Our firm represented the spouse of an elderly woman who sustained multiple broken bones as a result of being abused in a nursing home. The nursing home staff did not follow proper protocol in transferring her from bed to wheelchair and injured her as a result. This case settled for a confidential amount after our investigation and prior to filing a lawsuit.
If you believe that your loved one has been hurt by nursing home abuse or negligence then it is important that a full investigation be done into the alleged wrongdoing. That investigation may include a state investigation by Adult Protective Services or the Kentucky Long-Term Care Ombudsman. An investigation may also be conducted by the police, the attorney general’s office or your family’s nursing home abuse lawyer. Together, the information gathered may have a profound impact on your loved one’s ability to recover damages and the safety of others in the facility.
