Protecting Your Loved Ones with the Help of a Nursing Home Attorney in Riverside

Unfortunately, there may be a time when you need to hire a nursing home attorney in Riverside to protect a loved one suffering from an abusive situation. Nursing home abuse is a growing concern in the US, as many facilities are understaffed, underfunded and unable to provide the best level of care that your loved one deserves. When it comes to protecting the people who are the most important to you, it is best to hire an attorney who can help.

While there are plenty of nursing homes out there that are highly regarded for the level of care they provide, there are others who aren't quite as caring or careful with their patients. Nursing home residents are often at a higher risk for abuse than people in other types of healthcare facilities because they are often in a weakened state or are even unconscious. Elderly people whose abuse goes unnoticed in a nursing home may have unexplainable injuries, including broken bones or bruises, or they may show signs of emotional distress. You don't need to see the abuse happening to prove your case, which is why it's important to act even if you only suspect something illegal, is happening.

Your family members are required by the state of California to receive a certain standard of care when they are under the care of a professional caregiver, another family member or when they are living in a full-time medical facility. Protect the rights and the health of your loved one by hiring an attorney who specializes in cases of elderly abuse. It's the best way to navigate these emotionally challenging and often logistically difficult types of cases.

If you believe that you or someone you love is being abused in a nursing home, call 911 or your local police department right away and be sure to hire an attorney as well. When your loved one's quality of life and overall health is at stake, you want the best legal counsel to represent them.
