How Do I Prove Nursing Home Abuse in NYC?
Nursing home abuse claims can be traumatic and difficult—many nursing home residents are unable to live independently, which means they may have trouble upholding their own rights. It also can be tough to prove that nursing home staff are mistreating their patients.
So how do you prove nursing home abuse in NYC? If you or a loved one is struggling to prove abuse, a lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP may have the resources you need.
Evidence of Nursing Home Abuse
When you or a loved one is abused by nursing home staff, you will typically need evidence of the abuse suffered. For example, your family member may have been physically assaulted by nursing home staff. In these cases, they may have bruises, scrapes, or head or spine injuries, for example, from their ordeal. Photos of the injuries, as well as exam results from a doctor, can help you prove the staff was abusive.
Neglect can also leave physical marks. For example, you or a loved one may be unable to move yourself or get out of bed without assistance. If the staff doesn’t take care of these needs, you or your loved one may have developed bed sores after being left in one position for too long.
Some other signs of potential neglect include dirty or unkempt hair, unbrushed teeth, and clothes that may have been worn for multiple days.
Not every type of abuse is physical. Abusive nursing home staff may not physically harm the resident, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t abusive.
For example, emotional abuse can impact your loved one’s health, even if it doesn’t leave physical marks. If you suspect mental abuse, your lawyer can talk to the abuse victim and other residents about the abuse suffered there. These eyewitnesses can vouch for your story, showing that you or your family did suffer because of these abusers.
