Washington Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Lawyers

OUR LAW FIRM HELPS MAKE WRONGS RIGHT

When families cannot provide the level of care needed by their elderly loved ones, they perform diligent research to find the right facility or home healthcare worker to ensure they are well-protected. Unfortunately, research does not always reveal the true conditions their loved ones may face. Many seniors suffer abuse and neglect by staff members or by other residents.

Families must remain watchful for changes that point to abuse or neglect, and at the first signs, they should seek immediate legal assistance from Washington attorneys with specific experience in nursing home abuse and neglect cases. The compassionate attorneys at Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler PLLC have handled many of these nursing home cases.

 

NURSING HOME ABUSE CAN BE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, OR FINANCIAL

The elderly may be too afraid or unable to express abuse situations. This is why the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services helps families remain vigilant by watching for signs of abuse, such as the following:

  • Physical abuse. Evidenced by bruising, broken bones, or other injuries, medical reports indicating improper medication dosage, or signs of sexual abuse.
  • Mental or emotional abuse. Can be recognized if families notice their loved ones display sudden behavioral changes—such as if they become uncommunicative or withdrawn, or appear agitated and nervous around specific individuals.
  • Economic abuse. May be more common when the elderly have home healthcare workers. Families should be watchful for sudden changes in bank balances, bills going unpaid for no apparent reason, or the addition of names to bank accounts or sudden changes to the will or beneficiary lists on accounts.

If your loved one reports abuse or if you see any sign that your loved one is in distress, call Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler PLLC for a consultation with an attorney that concentrates in nursing home abuse.
