Brooklyn Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Sometimes, the worst signs of nursing home abuse are the ones you cannot see
According to the New York State Office of the Aging, we are an aging society. New Yorkers living longer, and the numbers of the elderly are increasing. The first wave baby boomers were born in 1946 and are already in their mid-60s. In fact, by 2030, New York’s senior population is expected to reach 5.2 million. Many of those will wind up in nursing homes. And sadly, many may be subjected to abuse and neglect.
At Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, we believe that our senior citizens and vulnerable adults deserve to be treated with care and dignity. When the nursing home with whom you have entrusted a family member betrays that trust, they must be held responsible.
Do you suspect that your parent, grandparent or other relative is being mistreated, neglected, abused or harmed in some way? Did you also know that many forms of abuse are not physical, and may be harder to detect?
As Brooklyn nursing home abuse lawyers, we have helped people in Staten Island, Queens, Westchester County, Long Island and throughout New York City and the state in cases of nursing home abuse that include:
- Physical abuse – including improper or excessive use of restraints, hitting, burning, kicking, punching, pushing and shoving, over-sedation, denying patients adequate food and drink (leading to malnutrition or weight loss and dehydration)
- Psychological abuse – verbal abuse, bullying, threats, harassment, isolation
- Sexual abuse – rape, forced nudity, sexual assault
- Financial abuse – stolen money, forged checks, abuse of power of attorney, deceit to have a patient sign a will or legal document
- Neglect – nurse, health aide or other medical professional inattention that leads to bedsores, inadequate nutrition and liquids, poor hygiene, infection, wandering
