Nursing Home Negligence
At Camacho Mauro, LLP, we care about the wellbeing and health of our families. We know that, like us, you care about your loved ones. That is why we represent victims and families of those subject to nursing home neglect, elder abuse, and substandard care at nursing homes.
Unlike other medical settings that exist only to treat the sick, nursing homes are actually homes to their residents. Whether elderly or those prematurely rendered frail due to illness or disability, nursing homes owe a special duty of care to the residents that call their facilities home. Nursing homes are required by law to strive to help each resident reach their maximum potential for healthy and dignified living.
Unfortunately, legally mandated standards of care are not always met. All too often, bad actors in an otherwise altruistic profession seek to maximize profits at the expense of the health and wellbeing of residents. Where specialized care is required and needed, a one-size fits all approach cannot be used. Trained staff, specialized diets, and cutting edge medical treatment is required; the use of unskilled aides, poor diet, and cheap cost cutting treatment is unacceptable.
When a nursing home fails to meet the needs of its resident, the results can be catastrophic. Loved ones become severely ill, are made to suffer and can even die due to substandard care and treatment. Thankfully, Federal and State laws exist to protect nursing home residents from abuse, and when those Federal and State laws are violated, private actions exist to compensate the injured or their families in case of death.
If you believe that you or a loved one was subjected to and suffered from nursing home abuse, neglect, or suffered substandard care, contact Camacho Mauro for a no cost, no obligation consultation. We prosecute nursing homes that put financial gain over the health and well-being of their residents. We strive to obtain justice and utilize all legal remedies to stop abuse and neglect while obtaining compensation for victims.
