Nursing Home Negligence
North Georgia Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers
Every year, thousands of elderly people in nursing homes and assisted living facilities suffer neglect at the hands of their caretakers. The most common type of nursing home negligence is physical abuse, sometimes referred to as elder abuse. Hitting, biting, punching, shoving, pushing, burning, cutting, battery, sexual assault, and molestation are all forms of physical abuse. But nursing home negligence is not just physical. It can also refer to psychological abuse, financial abuse, and neglect. It’s not unusual for victims of neglect to suffer from bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, infections, and more.
