No Excuses.
Physical Abuse In Nursing Homes Can Not Be Tolerated.

Nursing homes in Kentucky should be safe places where loved ones can live in peace. Sadly, the people we love who live in nursing homes or assisted living facilities are sometimes taken advantage of or subjected to emotional or even physical abuse. Since nursing home residents often have health issues, the consequences of reckless behavior can sometimes be severe, ranging from a serious injury to death. If a loved one dies, you may have grounds for a legitimate wrongful death case against the nursing home.

If your family suspects a case of nursing home abuse or neglect, contact the Shelton Law Group immediately. Our top-notch lawyers have helped countless families in Kentucky grappling with suspected cases of nursing home neglect. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can start investigating your claim. We have years of experience and are familiar with the signs of elderly abuse or neglect.

Nursing home abuse can take many forms. Sometimes, nursing home staffers don’t carefully monitor patients, who slip and fall and hurt themselves. Other times, nursing home personnel deliberately hurt patients. Other residents also might physically abuse someone. The nursing home staff may know about the abuse, but fail to stop it.

Physical abuse may include:

  • Punching
  • Slapping
  • Shaking
  • Beating
  • Kicking
  • Burning
  • Denying food or drink, resulting in malnutrition and dehydration
  • Pushing
  • Improper use of restraints

If you notice any unusual bruises or other physical signs of abuse, contact us. Sudden changes in mood or excessive sleeping or family members being uncommunicative may also be signs of physical abuse. If you suspect something, say something. Contact the Shelton Law Group today.

Physical abuse cases are complicated.
