Nursing Home Abuse
While there are many fine nursing home facilities in the State of Indiana, our state has received an “F” grade for nursing home care over the past few years. Brian Lee, executive director of Families for Better Care (FBC), a watchdog group that annually grades states from the best to worst for overall nursing home care, has said the quality of care at too many nursing homes is “absolutely shameful.” Click here to see the latest FBC results state by state.
It’s hard enough to make the difficult decision to put our loved ones into a nursing home. Still, a nursing home may be the best option for elderly family members who can no longer care for themselves. Unfortunately, patients may be harmed by nursing home neglect or abuse once they become residents. Before you make a decision on a nursing home, we urge you to research the facility very carefully.

Pursuing Truth and Accountability
Our attorneys hold nursing home facilities and staff accountable for the harm they have caused your loved one and the turmoil they have introduced to your family. We investigate claims and reveal the regrettable nature of negligent actions. We work hard to recover compensation on behalf of clients while also striving to prevent future incidents. We handle all forms of nursing home neglect and abuse, including:
Failure to provide sufficient nutrition causing malnutrition or dehydration
Failure to recognize or treat bed sores
Failure to treat infections causing illness or other problems, such as gangrene
Failure to follow physician orders
Failure to supervise resulting in falls or misplaced residents
Failure to correctly administer medications resulting in overdose or other adverse effects
Coercing vulnerable elderly residents
Physically abusing or sexually assaulting residents
Verbally abusing residents
Other nursing home neglect or abuse
Many nursing homes and assisted living facilities are overcrowded, understaffed, and staffed with untrained personnel. However, there is no excuse for providing negligent or inadequate care to residents or for abusing the elderly.
