What is abuse and neglect in Nursing Homes? | Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Nursing home abuse and neglect those terms are often used interchangeably typically as lawyers we tend to think of abuse as an intentional act by somebody in the nursing home an employee for example doesn’t intentional acts so just punches somebody or assaults somebody whereas neglect or negligence is carelessness its lack of attention it’s leaving somebody in a bed long enough that they create pressure sores and ulcers it’s not monitoring the medication appropriately so the nursing home patient who is completely dependent upon the care providers ends up with a significant injury or harm nursing homes are tasked with the responsibility of taking care for its entire existence the first nursing home case I was assigned was fresh out of Law School 30 years ago Phillips law offices is different than other firms who handle nursing home abuse and neglect cases because we have the medical background we understand the medicine involved because what happens in these nursing home cases is that the nursing homes typically say well the injury wasn’t due to neglect it was due to the underlying diminished or poor health of the resident and it’s unfortunate but stuff happens is the defense well if Phillips law offices because we are knowledgeable and trained with regard to medicine and terms and we’ve got vast experience with regard to medical negligence for example we know the home cases our cast aside aren’t looked at the way the defense would like the jurors to look at.
