What is Nursing Home Abuse?

The Cochran Firm – Dothan represents victims and their families for injuries and deaths caused by the failure of nursing homes to provide the care their patients need and deserve. Nearly two million Americans live in nursing homes, yet recent studies indicate nearly 90% of all nursing homes are understaffed, which is often a result of selfish motives to put profits ahead of patient care.

Abuse and neglect and the injuries they cause include:

  • Senior citizen or elder abuse
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Financial abuse and exploitation
  • Medication and prescription errors
  • Falls, drops, dislocations, and fractures
  • Physical, emotional, and psychological abuse
  • Inappropriate use of physical or chemical restraints
