Common Signs of Possible Nursing Home Abuse:
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Unexplained bruises
- Elevated level of confusion
- Untreated illness such as fever or infection
- Injury with unknown or unexplained cause
When a loved one is admitted to a skilled nursing facility, patients deserve and should be able to expect to receive the highest standard of nursing care possible. The terrible truth is that many of the state regulatory standards for nursing homes provide for a very minimal level of service, and far too many facilities fail to meet even those very low standards.
Florida Nursing Home Attorneys for Neglect or Abuse
Insufficient or substandard care for some of our frailest citizens can lead to serious and painful injury and even death. For more than three decades, The Ruth Law Team has investigated hundreds of such cases and successfully fought on behalf of patients and their families to get their suffering acknowledged by the facility and to have appropriate compensation paid. Most homes are now owned by large corporations who seek to shelter their assets and hide their culpability behind the veil of complex corporate structure. It takes a great amount of knowledge, experience, and skill to handle this type of legal case. Be certain that whatever law firm you choose has a significant history of dealing with this specific area of personal injury law.

The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin to help.
Nursing Home Neglect During COVID-19
The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has been especially difficult for families with loved ones in nursing homes. Nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities are closed to visitors. Typically, we recommend families check in on their loved ones frequently. This helps detect early signs of neglect or abuse. This pandemic has made it difficult for family members to know how their loved ones are truly doing. If you suspect your loved one is being treated poorly while doors are closed to the public, contact The Ruth Law Team. We offer free phone and video consultations. Call us at 888-783-8378.
