Charleston Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

For many families, one of the most heart-wrenching and daunting decisions they would have to make is to place a loved one in a nursing home. You are literally placing the daily care and life of your loved one in the hands of professional doctors, nurses, staff, and aids. You trust that they will do everything they can to ensure the safety and health of your loved one at all times.

Tragically, some nursing homes or care facilities fail to do what they promise, and the vulnerable people they are supposed to care for end up being injured or, even worse, dead. If you or a loved one has experienced any form of abuse, reach out to the Charleston nursing home abuse attorneys at Query Sautter & Associates, LLC, right away.

We will do everything in our power to ensure that your rights and best interests are protected and that those who harmed you are held accountable for their deplorable and negligent actions. But if you’re in immediate harm or danger, call 911 or the local police ASAP, and then give us a call so we can begin building your case against those who wronged you.

What Exactly is Nursing Home Abuse?

Nursing home abuse, also known as elder abuse, is the failure to act or intentional act by an individual or entity in a relationship that involves trust that results in harm or risk of injury to older people. Nursing home abuse can involve the following:

  • Neglect
  • Psychological or emotional abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse

Older adults who have been subjected to nursing home abuse have an increased risk of mortality, depression, hospitalization, suicide, financial loss, and relationship breakdowns, among many others. All these result in reduced quality of life and independence.

If you suspect that your loved one is being abused in any way or have noticed any changes in their health, mood, or personality, get medical assistance ASAP. Call 911, an ambulance, or a doctor you trust if the nursing home doesn’t want to address the issue.
