Uncovering the Truth
When a nursing home resident is being physically or sexually abused, the person does not always openly talk about it. Sometimes the resident is cognitively impaired and is not able to prevent the abuse. In other cases, the resident may be too ashamed to open up, or the resident feels it would be a burden on the family to report the abuse.
A victim’s testimony can prove vital in nursing home abuse cases. If you notice something is wrong, try to ask sensitive questions that encourage your family member to open up and tell you the truth about the situation.
Our firm also conducts its own investigation into the abuse claim. We work with geriatric social workers and other experts who can help determine if a resident is suffering the emotional effects of abuse. We question nurses and other staff members to identify any suspicious behavior of coworkers. We also work with family members to document any injuries or abuse.
At The Epstein Law Firm, we are committed to uncovering the truth and holding negligent and abusive parties accountable.
