The situation that you, your mother, and your entire family are in is stressful and unfortunate. Nursing home neglect should never happen, but it has happened to your family. You deserve answers, and there are ways for you to get the answers that you deserve and the protection that your mother needs.

First, you need to have your mother moved to a safe environment. This may be the hospital, another nursing home, or a private home with nursing care depending on your mother’s physical condition and financial resources.  

Next, you need to consult with your mother’s doctor and get a second opinion, if you believe that one is necessary. An experienced physician is in the best position to evaluate your mother’s health and help you understand what is the natural result of her age and medical conditions, and what may have been caused by nursing home neglect. 

Finally, you should speak with an experienced and empathetic Louisville nursing home neglect lawyer. If your mother was injured by nursing home staff neglect then she shouldn’t have to pay for her medical expenses, for her out of pocket costs, and for her emotional suffering. Instead, she may be entitled to legal damages.
