The number of nursing home claims has dramatically increased in the recent years because so many of our elder family members are living longer and requiring long-term care. With increased patients comes increased care givers. Like most medical fields, there are standards of care that care givers must follow. When a care giver is not giving the proper care to a resident, it may be considered negligence. There is no reason our parents and grandparents must suffer because a care giver does not do their job correctly. Call our office today to explore your options if you or a loved one has been the victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home or other care facility.
The Rayburn Law Office represented a young woman who was hospitalized for psychological counseling. While in the care of the hospital, one of her providers took advantage of her emotionally vulnerable state. As a result of this abuse of trust a claim was presented and confidentially settled between the parties.
