As the larger portion of our population ages, nursing homes and assisted living facilities will more and more become the reality for millions of Americans.

Unfortunately, despite the best intentions, sometimes nursing home abuse does occur.

Lack of attention to the patient, poor hygienic care, and improper medical care are not infrequent. Verbal and physical abuse are also examples of what can go wrong in a nursing home.

Important signs of abuse to notice may include – but certainly not be limited to – marked regression in the patient’s condition, apparent caregiver inattentiveness, and poor environmental conditions in the home itself.

If you or a loved one are experiencing any type of abuse in a nursing home, please contact Avera & Smith. Our team of attorneys and medical experts can help you determine what abuse is occurring and who is responsible.
