How To Respond To Nursing Home Injuries
When you or a loved one enters a nursing home or extended care facility, you expect to experience at least a basic level of care. Tragically, sometimes, nursing home staff and administration fail to perform to that basic standard. As a result, our loved ones can suffer.

Since 1958, we have represented clients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

Investigating Nursing Home Injuries
As we get older, our bodies become more fragile. Elderly individuals are more prone to bedsores, broken bones and other injuries. So how can you tell if your loved one’s injuries are the result of negligence?
Our attorneys have been investigating negligent nursing homes for decades. We know the signs to look for that can indicate serious negligence or even recklessness on the part of the staff or the facility’s administration. Some signs that may indicate negligence include:
- Frequently recurring bedsores
- Taut skin and parched lips that may indicate dehydration
- Gaunt appearance or skin discoloration that may indicate malnutrition
- Prolonged infections without proper medication
- Serious bruising that may indicate rough treatment or falls
- Frequently broken bones and other injuries
If you suspect negligence has caused your loved one’s injuries, we can help you perform a thorough investigation. Then, we can bring a claim against the individual or the facility. Also, know that you may report a negligent nursing home to several sources, including but not limited to a state long-term care ombudsman or an adult protective services agency.
