Houston Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Texas Elder Abuse & Neglect Attorney
They cared for us when we were children. Now many of our elderly are virtually helpless and depend on nursing homes and other care facilities for their very lives.
Abuse and neglect still occur despite federal and state laws and the public attention the issue has received. The elderly, individuals with special needs, and other vulnerable adults deserve better.
Don’t let nursing homes put their drive for profits above the needs and rights of your loved ones. We hear frequently of the skyrocketing costs of care in nursing homes. Shouldn’t residents receive adequate care?
Watch for signs of mistreatment of your loved one, including bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, injury due to falls, weight loss, bruises, and poor hygiene. Call the Woods Law Firm, P.C., immediately if you are concerned. Offenses include:
- Physical abuse
- Financial abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Other forms of abuse and neglect
State and federal laws such as the Nursing Home Reform Act mandate that nursing homes promote the “highest practicable” physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of elderly and vulnerable people. The law does not allow for excuses such as inadequate staff, or high costs. We are talking about people’s most basic needs.
