When a family member is sent to a nursing home, you expect and trust this loved one to be cared for and respected by the employees and staff of the nursing home. Nursing home abuse and neglect is something that families never expect will happen to their loved one. We understand the emotions that are invoked when a family learns how their loved one is being mistreated by someone they trusted. Our firm handles nursing home abuse and neglect cases throughout Arkansas and surrounding states. Those who violate and breach this trust will be held accountable.

Our growing elderly population depends more and more on institutional care for various reasons. Nursing liability is set by both federal and state regulations and nursing homes must adhere to these legal standards that regulate the quality of care. Unfortunately many times standards are breached and suffering or even death results. Warning signs and possible types of nursing home abuse and neglect include the following:

  • Sudden weight loss
  • Bedsores
  • Bruises
  • Falls
  • Staff inattention
  • Restraints
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Infections
