Abuse in nursing homes can take many forms, including the failure to provide medical treatment. When a nursing home resident becomes ill or requires specific medication and is denied that treatment and care, it's a failure on the nursing home's end. Not only is it abusive, but it's also illegal. Nursing homes receive federal grant money to function and are to uphold the law. Medical staff must provide medical care promptly, or transfer the resident to a facility that can treat them.
Failure to provide also pertains to any kind of medical professional- nurses, doctors, surgeons, and more. If you are in dire need of medical attention and not getting the care you have a right to, yo have options. Contact our law firm today for help.

Far too often in nursing homes a simple ailment will become an emergency situation due to negligent nursing home employees who do not seek timely medical treatment. Unfortunately, it can be too late once they finally address the medical issue or get a nursing home resident to the hospital to be treated by a physician.

Our team will find out where the liability lies and fight aggressively to make sure your loved one and your family are properly compensated for what has happened.
