Throughout North and South Carolina, patients and their families have learned that they can count on the skilled representation of the Warren & Kallianos law firm in nursing home neglect and abuse cases.
The Carolinas are popular retirement locations. Many elderly residents spend the end of their lives in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Such facilities are highly regulated, but the state does not have the resources to monitor the care and treatment of each individual resident. It is often up to relatives and friends to report signs of negligence. Our North Carolina nursing home abuse law firm has handled a full range of nursing home malpractice cases.
- Falls: Improper transfers (from bed to chair, for example), poor training, or negligent supervision can cause elderly and infirm people to fall. These falls often result in fractures leading to catastrophic consequences.
- Medication errors: Because of negligence, residents do not get their medications, are over-medicated, or are given medications that are contraindicated for their conditions. Poor record keeping, inadequate staff supervision, and negligent medical attention are among the causes.
- Starvation and dehydration: When patients are not properly fed, starvation causes weight loss and death. When they are not given enough fluids, they can dehydrate and suffer fatal renal failure or urinary tract infections. If you see signs of elder abuse, get help as quickly as possible.
- Bed sores: When bedridden people are not given proper care, bed sores can rapidly develop from stage 1 to stage 4 and become septic. Frail patients are subjected to unnecessary pain, suffering and life-threatening infections.
If you are concerned about how a relative is being treated in a nursing home or assisted living facility, contact the Charlotte nursing home abuse lawyers at Warren & Kallianos.
