When you entrust a loved one to a nursing home, it is with the good faith that your loved one will be treated well. You expect this nursing home to care for your loved one with a smile, providing him or her with safe quarters, hot meals, timely medication, and opportunities for recreation. What you would never expect is abuse and neglect, but unfortunately this happens more often than anyone would like to think.

An even bigger tragedy is that, all too often, very real abuse goes unreported because families fear that it will be a wasted effort. If only they knew that this is not the case. Nursing home abuse is a form of medical malpractice, and negligent nursing homes that allow abuse and neglect to happen must be held responsible. If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, contact a Bakersfield medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case.
