New Jersey Nursing Home Workers

When you trust your loved one to a care facility, you expect they will be in the hands of qualified, trained, and compassionate staff. Sadly, nursing home abuse and neglect at the hands of undertrained, unskilled, and even criminal employees is all too common. In fact, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse, as many as two million seniors living in nursing homes have been exploited, abused, or neglected by a caregiver.

Identifying Nursing Home Abuse

There are a number of signs of nursing home abuse you can check for when you visit your loved one including:

  • Unexplained injuries
  • Malnourishment or dehydration
  • Bedsores
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Emotional and behavioral changes

These signs of abuse and neglect often occur due to staff members who do not know how to deal with the unique needs of the elderly or who have criminal tendencies that were not looked into prior to their employment. Many nursing homes do not perform background checks, nor do they take the time to properly train new staff members. When your loved one suffers abuse at the hands of a nursing home worker, New Jersey nursing home abuse attorney Anthony Carbone can investigate the cause and work to protect your loved one against future injustice.

If you live in New Jersey and suspect your loved one is suffering abuse or neglect in their care facility, please contact the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone to schedule a free case evaluation today.
