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.
