Nursing Home Abuse
The Role of Nursing Homes
"Many of our loved ones need the type of care that can only be provided by a nursing home or other long term care facility. These institutions have a legal duty to insure their patients are well provided for. All too often improper training, understaffing and negligence can lead to abuse of nursing home and long term care patients. If you have a loved one who has been the victim of such negligence or abuse, call me. I'll fight for their rights."
- Attorney Christine Lezinski
The aging of our population brings with it many challenges, chief among them the care of our elderly. As a society, we are living longer. Many of our elderly are in need of sometimes intensive medical care in their final years. To provide that care, we often put our trust in nursing homes and long term care facilities.
Many of these institutions do an excellent job. Others however, whether for profit or from negligence, fail to properly train or supervise their employees. This can lead to terrible abuse of elderly patients.
