When you entrust your loved one to a nursing home, we know that you expect them to be cared for. It can be horrifying to learn that your senior has been suffering from a poor diet and inadequate health standards because of a careless nursing home staff.
If you suspect that your relative or friend is a victim of malnutrition, you should schedule a doctor’s appointment for him or her right away. If a physician confirms your suspicions, we suggest you call a Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyer at Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C. to discuss your potential case.
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.
