Elder Abuse Practice Areas in Fairfield

Nursing home abuse is one of the most common cases of elder abuse in California. Many patients suffer from a lack of proper care which could result in physical, mental and emotional deterioration. Bedridden or wheelchair-bound patients could develop bedsores unless they are kept mobile, which could become infected without care. Unaddressed infections can only grow worse, even resulting in sepsis (blood poisoning). Patients have also been denied necessary amounts of food and water, resulting in malnutrition and dehydration, which could cause irreversible damage. Elderly people also require certain medications, which means that medication errors could result in illness or overdose. Some patients can also wander or elope if they are not properly supervised or restrained , which could result in falls and injury.

Keep in mind that there are many different types of elder abuse. The first that usually comes to mind is physical abuse, evident through bruises and other injuries, as well as unexplainable fear or anxiety. Anxiety and depression can also hint at emotional abuse, which can be inflicted through verbal threats and insults or any other kind of abuse, such as neglect. Also, staff members and other residents could force them to engage in sexual activity against their will. Sexual abuse can also be a form of resident-on-resident abuse, as can any other kind of maltreatment.

If an elderly loved one suddenly seems to have lost income or is living in poverty for no apparent reason, they may be a victim of financial abuse. It is also possible for them to be wrongfully discharge d unless you get help from a competent attorney . Transferring or releasing a patient while they are still in need of medical care is illegal. Hospitals and care facilities may attempt to make up excuses or reasons, but they cannot legally go through with a discharge or transfer without the patient's consent or the consent of their legal guardian. Speak with a lawyer today immediately to protect an abused elderly person and help them obtain compensation for their pain and suffering.
