Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Serving Howell, Oakhurst, Toms River, New Jersey and clients throughout NJ

Many families today grapple with the decision to place an elderly loved one in a nursing home, assisted living center, or other facility.

No one wants to see their older parent or relative living away from their home. In some cases, however, a nursing home is the safest place for a sick or mentally unstable loved one.

Nursing Home Abuse AttorneyAs the population has grown older, nursing home abuse and neglect has sadly become more common.

By 2050, the number of people age 65 and over in the United States is expected to double, growing from 43 million to almost 84 million.

New Jersey is home to many fine nursing homes staffed by competent, caring health care professionals. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes provide safe, attentive care.

In some cases, residents are abused and neglected. This can cause pain, heartache, and permanent psychological and physical damage for nursing home residents and their families.

When nursing homes fail to meet the appropriate standard of care, they must be held accountable for their negligence.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

At Schibell Law, LLC, we have represented nursing home abuse victims and their families in a wide range of New Jersey elder abuse and neglect cases.

Some of the most common examples of nursing home negligence include:

  • Failure to appropriately monitor residents
  • Falls
  • Broken bones
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to property care for bedridden patients
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Physical assault by staff or other residents
  • Sexual abuse
  • Failure to maintain tracheotomies or ventilator support
  • Unqualified staff
