New York & New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Morelli Law Firm

Elder abuse and neglect in long-term care facilities is a serious problem in the United States. Unfortunately, many abusers are never held responsible for their actions. Researchers have found that more than 90 percent of nursing homes in the United States do not employ enough staff members to ensure thorough care for their patients. Another study conducted in 2000 revealed that - of the 2,000 nursing home residents interviewed - 95 percent had been neglected or witnessed neglect in their facility, and 44 percent reported that they had been abused. Our legal team at Morelli Law Firm fights for the victims of nursing home abuse in New York and New Jersey.

What should I do if I suspect abuse?

An average nursing home with 100 beds will see anywhere from 100 to 200 falls per year, and about 250,000 residents of nursing homes across the nation experience painful bedsores annually. Some of the most common types of nursing home abuse injuries include falls and fractures, malnutrition, bedsores, and dehydration. These injuries are avoidable. With proper and proactive care none of these and other injures - including bowel impaction and unaddressed infections - should occur. If you have reason to be suspicious of elder abuse, contact a New York and New Jersey nursing home abuse attorney at our firm right away to discuss your case.

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including sexual abuse, serious neglect, physical abuse, financial exploitation, and psychological and emotional abuse. One report found that one in three U.S. nursing homes had been cited for federal violations. About 10 percent of nursing homes were cited for violations that had caused residents to suffer serious injury, harm, and even death.
