Protect Your Loved Ones. Assert Their Rights. Be Their Advocate.

In cases of nursing home neglect, justice often comes in the form of compensation for physical injuries, emotional damage, and grief over the death of a loved one.  New York nursing home abuse lawyers Josh Gillette and Janet Izzo have experience pursuing nursing home negligence.  Claims include the following:

  • Bedsores — Bedridden patients must be moved and repositioned regularly to prevent infections that take the form of bedsores. When staff fails to meet these standards, severe bedsores can develop and may result in serious illness or death.
  • Medication errors — Although electronic medical records represent progress in documenting a patient’s prescription needs, communication between nursing home staff and pharmacists is still lacking. Dosage instructions may contain errors, or may not be provided at all.
  • Falls — For an elderly nursing home resident, a broken bone is a serious and potentially fatal injury. Many senior citizens have died within days, weeks, or months, due to nursing home negligence or lack of adequate staff.
  • Wandering and elopement — Patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are prone to wandering. However, nursing homes are responsible for taking proper precautions to ensure patient safety at all times.
  • Malnutrition and dehydration — Malnutrition and dehydration remain two of the most common forms of elder abuse in the United States.  These lead to thousands of deaths every year.
