Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Representing Victims of Nursing Home Neglect and Their Families

Placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility is often an emotional, difficult decision. Many times, adult children and other family members lack the training and resources to care for the older loves ones in their lives. When families make these hard choices, they trust their relatives will receive compassionate care. When this trust is betrayed, it is common to feel a mixture of guilt, anger and outrage.

What Is Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect?

At Ruchti & Beck, we understand the devastation that comes with discovering that an elderly family member has been abused or neglected by the very people you entrusted to care for them. We aggressively pursue compensation for the victims of nursing home abuse and neglect.

Helping Our Most Vulnerable Citizens

An aging population, coupled with continued advances in health care, means that a growing number of families must turn to nursing homes to care for the seniors in their lives. These facilities should provide our loved ones with comfort, safety and superior medical care. Unfortunately, many nursing homes are poorly staffed and understaffed. In many cases, caregivers lack adequate training; in others, nursing homes fail to properly screen employees to ensure they possess the medical knowledge and personal temperament required to care for the elderly. At Ruchti & Beck, we help seniors and their families receive fair compensation for injuries sustained due to nursing home abuse and neglect.

Seeking Justice against Negligent Nursing Homes and Their Employees

In many cases, nursing home residents are unable to speak up when abuse and neglect is occurring. At Ruchti & Beck, we are a strong voice for seniors and their families. We do everything in our power to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions and behavior. Abuse and neglect can occur under a variety of circumstances, including:

  • Poor facility maintenance
  • Underqualified staff
  • Failure to conduct employee background screening
  • Unsanitary living conditions
  • Failure to properly maintain medical equipment
  • Failure to properly administer medications
