Escondido, CA Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Nursing home neglect and abuse is a shockingly common problem in California. It’s estimated that up to 25% of residents experience abuse at least once, but what is nursing home abuse exactly?

Types of Elder Abuse in Escondido:

  • Financial Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Neglect

Abuse may come from staff members or even other residents.

Given the high rate of neglect and abuse, it’s important to recognize the signs of elder abuse in a family member in an Escondido nursing home:

  • Bed sores
  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Fractures
  • Infections
  • Fall injuries
  • Rapid changes in weight
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Heavy sedation

At Berman & Riedel, LLP, our nursing home abuse law firm represents family members and victims of nursing home abuse. California PC 368 makes elder abuse a serious crime. In addition to potential criminal charges, California law allows for awards directly to victims and family members who are successful in a lawsuit against a care facility. There are also strong civil penalties that can allow for damage awards.

There are many care options for seniors who need comprehensive medical care or assistance with tasks of daily living including nursing homes (or long-term care facilities) and assisted living facilities. It’s important to understand the difference when choosing an appropriate facility for your loved one. While nursing homes staff licensed medical providers and offer personal and medical care, assisted living facilities focus on personal care in a home-like setting without intensive medical supervision. Both types of facilities are regulated by the state.

These facilities are different than Home Care Organizations which must be licensed but provide home care aides to serve seniors in their homes with non-medical care.

Seniors account for 14% of the Escondido population with more than 21,000 seniors over 65 living in the city. Seniors are served by 7 nursing homes in Escondido and over 70 assisted living and senior care communities.

No matter what type of care is most appropriate for your loved one, they have the right to safe and quality care free of abuse. Remember: elder abuse can happen anywhere. If you suspect your loved one is being abused or mistreated, it’s important to contact an Escondido Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer to protect your loved one’s rights.
