People in nursing homes should be treated with respect and special attention.

When you make the difficult decision to entrust a loved one to a nursing home, you rightfully expect the staff to provide the utmost care. People in nursing homes should be treated with respect and special attention, especially since many of them are completely dependent upon the staff to meet their needs. Because of their vulnerability, nursing home residents can often be victims of mistreatment and negligence.

The Birmingham, Alabama, law firm of Petway, French & Ford believes that the elders in our community have a right to be treated and cared for with dignity and respect. Our compassionate legal team is committed to helping seek justice for victims of nursing home neglect. Our nursing home neglect attorneys have 60 combined years of experience, and they take seriously every instance of abuse and neglect brought to their attention. Throughout their experiences in nursing home neglect cases, they have seen evidence of falls from wheelchairs and beds, bed sores and ulcers, malnutrition, dehydration, misplacement of feedings tubes, and inadequate staff. If you know someone who suffered from nursing home neglect, our firm wants to help you and your family.

Unfortunately, nursing home neglect is a growing problem. Almost two million people in the United States reside in nursing homes, yet nursing homes throughout the country are understaffed and often poorly trained, leading to staff negligence. Neglect is defined as the refusal or failure to fulfill any part of one’s duties to an elder. Signs of nursing home neglect may include malnutrition and dehydration, bed sores or pressure sores, infections, fractures or broken bones, burns, soiled bedding, and medical errors or negligence.
