The Holidays and Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect in Hollywood

The holiday season can be hectic, and if you have a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you don’t want to overlook the signs of nursing home abuse or neglect because of the busy nature of this time of year. If something seems amiss, trust your instincts and investigate further. A moment of concern could be the catalyst for ensuring the well-being of a vulnerable individual.

Protecting Vulnerable Adults

Here are the ways you can protect a friend or family member in an assisted living facility or nursing home:

  • Visit when you can. Amidst the festivities of this time of year, take the time to visit your loved ones in nursing homes. Your presence brightens their day and can also be a deterrent to potential abuse or neglect. Talk with both residents and staff, creating a sense of community and ensuring that your loved ones are receiving the care they deserve.
  • Document any concerns you have. If you notice anything worrisome during your visits, document your observations. Write down the dates, times, and details of any incidents or concerns. Take photos of any unsafe conditions in case you need to escalate the issue or report it to authorities.
  • Know your rights. Read about the policies and procedures of the nursing home and be sure to follow the expected procedures when reporting your concerns. Keep records of any communication with the facility.
  • Report abuse and neglect. If you suspect abuse or neglect, don’t hesitate. Contact authorities or the nursing home’s administration promptly.
  • Contact a nursing home abuse and neglect attorney. It can be difficult to navigate a case of nursing home abuse and neglect alone. Nursing homes may not be transparent about internal investigations or may have confusing policies. Authorities may be overwhelmed by cases. A Hollywood nursing home abuse and neglect lawyer, on the other hand, is on your side and always acts in your best interests.

Charlie is a very skilled attorney that advocates hard for his clients. But the best part is he is an all around great guy. He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
