Philadelphia Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Lawyers

Do Not Hesitate to Seek Help

Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be very difficult. Whether the placement of parents or loved ones is due to a short-term illness or declining ability to care for themselves, you have the right to expect that they will receive proper care.

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 harm they cause.

Signs of Potential Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

If you have a loved one in a nursing home, common problems you should watch for include:

  • Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
  • Traumatic injuries and fractures
  • Physical and sexual assaults
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Bruises or injuries of unknown origin
  • Missed medical diagnoses
  • Wandering or elopement

If you suspect your family member is receiving substandard care or is a victim of neglect or abuse, do not wait to for harm to occur. Our experienced nursing home neglect attorneys can quickly assess the number of prior complaints or issues against a nursing home, investigate the matter, and determine if you have cause for concern. If something went wrong and you just do not know why, call us — we can find out for you.
