Nursing Home Abuse Litigation Lawyers In Perry Park Kentucky

Perry Park is an unincorporated community, country club and golf resort in Owen County, Kentucky, near Owenton and Carrollton. It is located one hour southwest of Cincinnati, one hour northwest of Lexington, and forty-five minutes east of Louisville, and lies on the Kentucky River. It is one of the more popular golf resorts in the area and has a long history. It is very secluded and private and is thus relatively unknown to most people. The bed and breakfast "Glenwood Hall" was originally constructed as a plantation, where tobacco or possibly soy according to some sources, was grown and shipped to the rest of the United States by the Kentucky River. Perry Park is also noted for its low crime rate and for the fact that it is a gated community with staffed security guards at all entrances.

What is nursing home abuse litigation?

Nursing Home Abuse is defined as repeated actions or the lack of appropriate action that causes harm or distress to an older person when in an institution or health care facility. It can take the form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, among others. Cases may involve residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities who have suffered physical and/or psychological harm due to negligent or intentional acts of their caregivers. A nursing home abuse attorney may seek to hold a care facility liable based on legal theories like negligent screening and supervision of employees, or improper facility maintenance.
