Can you protect loved ones from further nursing home abuse?

A pending nursing home negligence case can mean a lot of turmoil.

One concern you may have is keeping your loved one safe and comfortable while a case is ongoing. Taking a few steps can mean a world of difference.

Alternative care options

It may be necessary to explore alternative care options for your loved one rather than keeping them in the nursing home where they experienced negligence. This could involve transferring them to a different facility or arranging for in-home care services. Prioritize their safety and quality of life above all else.

Close monitoring

Whether your loved one stays at the original nursing home or goes somewhere else, closely monitor their care. Regular visits and communication with staff can provide valuable insights into their daily treatment and well-being.

Document any concerns or incidents to help build a case and ensure accountability. For example, take photographs of any injuries or unsafe conditions. Keep detailed records of incidents, and collect testimonies from witnesses if possible. This evidence can be invaluable in holding negligent parties accountable and seeking justice for your loved one.

Their rights

Advocate for your loved one’s rights throughout the legal process. Ensure they receive proper medical treatment, access to necessary resources and protection from further harm. Stay informed about their legal rights and collaborate with healthcare professionals to address any concerns.

Open communication

Effective communication with both your loved one and their healthcare providers is important for addressing any issues that may arise. Encourage your loved one to share their experiences and concerns with you. Facilitate open dialogue with nursing home staff to address any issues promptly.

Protecting loved ones during a nursing home negligence case requires vigilance. Take care of yourself, too. Seek emotional support from friends, family or support groups. Self-care lets you offer the most effective advocacy possible.
