I suspect a family member is being mistreated in the nursing home. What can I do?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Lack of care or outright abuse can result in serious harm to nursing home residents. Sometimes unable to speak up for themselves, elderly residents can be at the mercy of their caregivers. Common problems are residents injured in falls because inadequate precautions are taken, residents who are injured while wandering, bedsores, infections, inadequate nutrition and even intentional abuse. Every nursing home resident deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. New York law protects nursing home residents. If someone you love has been injured as a result of neglect or abuse, contact Lacy Katzen LLP’s litigation attorneys to discuss your claim.
