Aggressively Protecting The Rights Of Vulnerable Illinois Seniors And Their Families

Warning signs of nursing home abuse and neglect you should watch for include:

  • Unexplained cuts, burns, sprains or fractures
  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Staff’s refusal to allow visitors to see a resident
  • Staff’s refusal to allow a resident to be alone with his or her visitor
  • Conditions of over-medication
  • Theft of a resident’s possessions or curious withdrawals from his or her bank accounts
  • Abrupt, mysterious changes in a last will and testament, or other financial or estate documents

Many nursing homes are understaffed. Some personnel have been poorly trained and do not feel the empathy for residents that they should. Patients are not turned in their beds regularly, resulting in painful bedsores. Pharmacists can commit medication errors. No matter how your senior loved one became a victim of nursing home negligence and abuse, Goldfine & Bowles attorneys can help return him or her to a setting that promotes a dignified lifestyle.
