    Shaffer & Making Right a Situation That’s Gone Very Wrong

    Few things are more disturbing than realizing that a spouse, parent, grandparent, or other loved one is suffering abuse or neglect at their nursing home.

    It’s a betrayal on the part of an organization you trusted with your family member. It’s heartbreaking.

    To repair the situation and move on from this trauma, you can consider a personal injury claim for nursing home abuse.

    How Does Nursing Home Abuse Happen?

    It’s a sad fact that resources are often lacking for elderly people, people with disabilities, and others who are unable to take care of themselves independently.

    This can create unsafe nursing home conditions.

    Nursing home abuse and neglect happens because of problems like these:

    • The nursing home is short on staff.
    • Management fails to hire qualified, competent care providers.
    • Training for the staff is poor.
    • Ongoing supervision of the staff is poor.
    • The facility fails to use proper measures to prevent the spread of infections.
    • The center lacks an organized system for keeping track of prescription medications.

    Sometimes it can be hard to know what’s going on behind the doors of your loved one’s nursing home.

    If you’ve noticed something wrong, one of the best ways you can find out more and get relief for this situation is to have a West Virginia nursing home abuse attorney ask the right questions and investigate your case.
