Nursing homes, adult family homes, and other patient-care facilities are often severely understaffed. Their workers are often severely underpaid and under-qualified for the duties they are performing. These facilities often put turning a profit over the care of our loved ones.
When a nursing light goes unanswered or a person is not receiving the attention they deserve, it can lead to a variety of issues, including choking, dehydration, malnutrition, pressure sores, infections, or even death through neglect. Sometimes the overly stressed conditions of the workers even lead to abuse of the residents.
At Issaquah Legal Services, we can help you seek justice for your loved one. Our knowledge of medicine, common issues in nursing home abuse and neglect cases, and our litigation experience will help ensure your loved one is not forgotten and will prevent the same failures from happening to others.
