4 types of nursing home abuse your parent could suffer

Nursing home abuse isn't just physical violence. While that's one type that you might recognize when you see it, other kinds are more subtle. For instance, a nurse falling behind and skipping a resident's bath one day might not stand out, but it's still negligence to allow any medical requirement to go unmet. Not only that, but your parent deserves to receive fair, humane treatment. Here are four kinds of nursing home abuse that you should look for.

Federal agency issues rule prohibiting nursing home arbitration agreements

Back in March, we wrote about arbitration agreements as used in nursing home admission agreements. Such agreements have been criticized for preventing nursing home residents from seeking just compensation for sub-standard care, and for allowing long-term care institutions to keep their misdeeds from the public light. As we pointed out last time, though, these agreements are typically upheld on the principles of contract law. As long as the agreement is part of a valid and binding contract, they are usually upheld.

Work with experienced legal counsel when challenging nursing home arbitration agreements

Last time, we began speaking about the use of arbitration agreements in nursing home care. As we noted last time, arbitration agreements have come to be increasingly used by facilities in order to manage liabilities stemming from negligence in the care of residents.

Arbitration agreement apparently at play in nursing home lawsuit

Golden LivingCenter, a nursing home facility located in Stanford, Kentucky, is currently the target of several lawsuits involving accusations of negligence. One suit, filed last December, makes similar allegations with respect to another resident who suffered from poor hygiene, abscessed skin, and bacterial infection. Yet another lawsuit, the first to be filed, seeks to hold the facility accountable for the wrongful death of a resident.
