Untreated/Unreported Injuries in WA Nursing Homes

Trusted Washington Elder Abuse Lawyer

The Nursing Home Reform Act was passed by Congress in 1987, requiring that all nursing home facilities receiving funding from Medicare and Medicaid to provide a reasonable standard of physical, mental, and psychological care to each resident. This includes reporting injuries and treating residents with adequate and timely care. If a nursing home has left your loved one's injuries untreated, then they may be in violation of this statute. Consult with one of our compassionate Washington nursing home abuse attorneys at SGB if you have evidence that your loved one may be suffering from neglect or abuse in his or her nursing home.

Nursing homes are required to treat and report any injuries, including:

  • Infections
  • Bed sores
  • Sprains
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Broken bones

Tell us about your loved one's case during a FREE evaluation.

Seeking Justice and Compensation for Elderly Victims

You may be able to hold the nursing home liable for your injuries, including for economic and non-economic damages. Our team of elder rights advocates can walk you through the legal process to help your loved one seek full and fair compensation for their losses.

Your loved one may be able to recover damages that include:

  • Medical expenses for the injuries
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical pain

If your loved one passed away due to elder abuse or neglect, we can represent you in a wrongful death case to help you seek additional damages for loss of companionship.

Helping to Make a Difference in Our Community

We rely on nursing home personnel and staff to protect our loved ones, not to hurt them. When they fail to uphold their duties and obligations, then they should be held accountable. It is important that you stand up to negligent nursing homes. Together, we can help make a positive difference in our loved one's lives and improve the standard of living in the nursing home community.
