Nursing Home Abuse in Georgia

By Grant Law Office on November 30, 2011

The placement of an elderly family member in a supervised living residence, or nursing home, is an incredibly hard decision. News reports of terrible accounts of nursing home abuse make the choice even more difficult. This may occur for many reasons stemming from a facility’s negligence. Among them are the insufficient monitoring of employee backgrounds, inadequate training programs, lack of proper staffing, improper administration efforts by supervisors, and other causes. Whatever the cause, all are indefensible.

The National Center On Elder Abuse (NCEA) reports that one to two million elderly nursing home residents (ages 65 years old and over) have been subject to injury, exploitation, and general mistreatment from staff at a nursing home facility where they resided. According to the NCEA, a mere one out of fourteen cases of this insidious type of abuse is brought to the awareness of the appropriate authorities. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calculated that over 500,000 elderly adults above 60 years old have been subject to abuse of some kind each year in the United States.

Abuse can take many forms, including physical, mental, emotional, and financial. It’s frequently up to family members to make sure their elderly loved ones receive proper care in nursing home facilities and are not subjected to any type of mistreatment. If you have an elderly loved one that has been subject to nursing home abuse of any kind in Georgia, contact the Atlanta nursing home abuse attorneys with The Law Office of Wayne Grant, P.C.
