If You Have a Loved One in An Ohio Nursing Home, We Hope You Don’t Need Us

The care and supervision of loved ones are entrusted with nursing homes, assisted living and managed care facilities throughout Ohio. While most provide excellent care, supervision and quality of life, some nursing homes are not worthy of that trust. It’s a harsh reality that a loved one may become a victim of unexplained injuries, verbal and/or physical abuses, substandard care, neglect or worse, unexpected death.

Nursing home and managed care facilities are highly regulated operations. There are specific rules and requirements in place to protect residents and patients. These facilities must satisfy these requirements.

Errors in administering medication, dehydration, malnutrition, falls, broken bones, fractures and other injuries may occur if staff members do not receive the proper certifications and training. Poor hiring practices may result in some facilities retaining staff members with a history of neglect, abuse and carelessness. Sexual assaults by other residents or employees of the care facility are unthinkable acts but they do happen.

These are just a few examples of what can occur in Ohio nursing home and care facilities. Your loved one deserves the respect and dignity that comes with proper care. A level of service that falls short of that requires action.

No one knows your loved one better than you. You will notice the signs and your gut feeling, intuition or suspicions will tell you something is wrong. If questions or concerns have begun to form in your mind, you owe it to yourself and your loved one to get help and answers. the Ohio law firm of Slater & Zurz can provide answers.
