Nursing Home Neglect

Massachusetts Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Attorneys

Loved ones should be safe and well cared for in their nursing home.  Unfortunately, many elderly or incapacitated individuals suffer injuries and other trauma at the hands of nursing home staff.

The law firm of Stephen G. Morte offers competent and thorough representation to individuals that are concerned about the safety and well-being of loved ones that are in a nursing home. The lawyers are dedicated to helping clients understand their rights and determining the best way in which to pursue a resolution to the situation.  Nursing home residents that have been abused or neglected may have experienced some of the following:

  • Bedsores (Decubitus Ulcers)
  • Injuries from falls when unsupervised
  • Malnutrition
  • Wrong medications given
  • Failure to attend to medical situations

Cases also arise from allegations of assault. This is a very serious situation and requires aggressive investigation. The firm strives to uncover the truth of the matter as efficiently and effectively as possible in order for a lawsuit to be solidly constructed.  Both the nursing home and individual employees can be held responsible.  In fact, if the individual employee is not held responsible for the injuries sustained, then the nursing home itself cannot be held accountable.  This is why it is so important to learn as much as possible about situation in which the injuries were inflicted. If the employee and/or care facility are not held responsible for their actions (or lack of actions), the neglect and abuse may continue and spread to other patients.
