Nursing Home Abuse
When your loved one becomes too elderly or ill you place your trust with medical and healthcare facilities and professionals in hopes of top quality of care. Unfortunately, elderly care facilities are not created equal and your loved ones could be at risk of suffering abuse, neglect, or personal injury. The top way you can best protect your loved one is by personally visiting their facility and having a clear understanding of the behaviors that constitute abuse and neglect under Texas law. Neglect can fall under the categories of neglect of basic needs and medical neglect. This neglect could present itself as inadequate or lack of nutrition, hygiene, hydration, failing to address medical needs and more.
