Nursing Home Abuse

Our Nassau County Attorneys Demand Safe Nursing Home Practices on Long Island

Nursing homes should function as properly as any other medical care facility. Unfortunately, nursing homes are too frequently a source of neglect and elder abuse. Residents who suffer at the hands of nursing home staff members deserve to tell their stories and to get justice.

When you or a family member relies on caregivers, those caregivers have a responsibility to fulfill daily needs while honoring your dignity. For over six decades, Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, has fought to hold Nassau County, Suffolk County, and New York City care centers accountable for their failures. We are committed to protecting the rights of vulnerable adults.

We Work To Identify Nursing Home Problems

Elder abuse and nursing home neglect could happen due to a variety of circumstances, but poor treatment is not justifiable. In a nursing home abuse case, our lawyers search for evidence of environmental hazards, verbal abuse, or injuries to the resident.

The most common issues that contribute to wrongful treatment in a nursing home include:

  • Understaffing, which can delay care for a resident’s urgent or daily needs
  • Insufficient training of staff
  • Lack of monitoring, which risks leaving a resident untreated after a fall or medical emergency
  • Malicious actions of staff such as yelling at residents or withholding food or water as punishment
  • Negligent behavior such as failing to bathe residents or keep the environment clean

A resident’s family may suspect nursing home negligence upon noticing bedsores, dehydration, bruises, or a sudden decline in health. Unfortunately, the problem might not be evident until it becomes fatal. We aim to find the truth behind closed doors of nursing homes in Westbury and across Long Island to end the abuse and help residents and their families recover.
