Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C. is passionate about keeping Philadelphia nursing homes accountable. If you notice bruising, cuts, or other injuries and believe your loved one has been harmed by nursing home staff or injured because of their negligence, call our firm right away.

Nursing home staff and the companies that operate them are legally obligated to provide an atmosphere that is physically and mentally safe. Unfortunately, the desire for monetary gain, poor management decisions, understaffing, inadequate training, or failure to oversee workers can lead to the neglect of their needs.

Our Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyers at Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C. saw a need early on for checks and balances to provide proper care of people in Pennsylvania nursing homes. Two decades ago, when most firms turned away these cases, our firm began to prosecute them and since then have been on the cutting edge of holding nursing home companies accountable for the harm they cause.

Bruising May Be a Sign of Nursing Home Abuse

If your loved one has excessive bruising, take time to ask him or her about the injuries. Some seniors suffer from mental illnesses such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, and may not be able to recall where their bruises came from. In this case, it is always wise to continue investigating to confirm that the injuries were not due to staff abuse or neglect. You should report it to the managers of the facility and insist upon an investigation and that they inform you of their findings.

Bruises may have been caused by:

  • Physical assault by nursing home staff or a fellow resident
  • A fall accident
  • Sexual abuse by nursing home personnel
  • Van, shuttle, or golf cart accidents
  • Accidents caused by wandering
  • Extremely tight restraints used on the patient

Loved ones should also be on the lookout for other injuries such as:

  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Pressure ulcers

Advocating for Victims of Nursing Home Abuse & Their Loved Ones

At Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C., we advocate for those that can’t fight for themselves. Your loved one should be protected from harm when in a nursing home, not exposed to it. Exasperated workers may beat a resident or strap him or her into a bed without regard to injury. This behavior should never be justified and should always be penalized. We are here to make sure that justice is served. 215-568-5885
