Nursing Home Abuse

nursing home abuseAlabama nursing homes have some of the poorest annual inspection scores in the Southeast. Studies have shown that Alabama nursing homes are some of the worst in the nation when it comes to staffing; providing sufficient assistance to residents;  properly assessing residents; and for both accident prevention and availability of resident activities.

Because of the lack of attention in long-term care settings, residents may suffer a number of preventable injuries that include:

  • Pressure sores
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Falls
  • Medication errors or medication overuse
  • General neglect or abuse

Too often, nursing home residents are the helpless victims of nursing facilities that place profits over people. At Siniard, Timberlake & League, we believe the victims and their loved ones  should have a voice.
