Nursing Home Abuse

Stamford Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Protect Your Elderly Loved Ones from Abuse

Nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers, elderly housing, and transitional living companies serve an important function in Connecticut.

They provide many types and levels of health and rehabilitative care around the clock. Nursing home and life care facility stays are expensive undertakings in today's ever-changing world.

The cost and the length of time that a patient may stay will vary with the:

  • Medical condition
  • Infirmity
  • And the age of the patient or resident

When we entrust our loved ones to the care of a facility and nursing home staff, we expect that they will be genuinely cared for. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Contact The Rotatori Law Firm at (203) 626-1446 for help pursuing compensation in your nursing home absue case.

Minimum Standards of Care Set by the Government

Even in today's complex economic world, nursing homes and life care facilities have legal obligations to patients and residents. They are required to provide a minimum acceptable standard of care for safety and healthcare.

The high cost of healthcare can often adversely affect the ability of a nursing home to provide a properly staffed and reasonably safe environment for the patients. Minimum safety standards are set by the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health and the federal government.

The Code of Federal Regulations, a set of federal permanent rules, sets minimum standards for several aspects of elder care, including but not limited to:

  • Care
  • Staffing
  • Administration of medication
  • Administration of restraints

Nursing homes and convalescent homes have written mandated policies that must be adhered to in order to ensure that seniors and elderly loved ones are protected, cared for, and kept safe from nursing home abuse, neglect, negligence, and malpractice. Our Stamford nursing home abuse attorneys can help help you seek compensation if these standards were not met.
