Both the federal government and the Kentucky state government are taking steps to address elder abuse in and out of nursing homes. However, you should not count on either government to protect your loved one. Instead, if you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of physical, sexual, emotional, or financial abuse, you should contact an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer in Louisville for more information about your loved one’s rights and possible recovery.
The federal and state governments are taking steps to investigate and address the problem of elder abuse. For example, in October 2012 the federal government convened the first meeting of the Elder Justice Coordinating Council, and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services has released several publications to help combat elder abuse in our state.
While the governments are taking action to prevent nursing home abuse, government action takes time to work and does not necessarily focus on your loved one. Accordingly, it is important for you to be alert to the possible signs of nursing home abuse and to promptly report suspected nursing home abuse to the proper authorities and to your Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer.
