Nursing Home Neglect Archives

Dealing with senior wandering in nursing homes

Many people who know that their senior relative is prone to wandering are troubled and frightened for their loved one, particularly if their elder relative lives in a New York City assisted living facility and requires monitoring. You may have to choose a nursing home or facility based on why your senior wanders. Wandering is a problem many nursing homes deal with, and how they handle it can depend on the reasons a senior chooses to wander.

How can I best transition my loved one to a nursing home?

Making the decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is never easy. We all hope that our older relatives can maintain their quality of life at their own home, but sometimes that is not plausible. Whether it is due to health conditions or other factors, some older people simply cannot remain in their own homes and need the care a New York nursing home can provide. The best way to ensure the transition goes smoothly is to make it easier on your loved one.

Elder abuse: understanding the warning signs

When the time comes for families in New York to assess the long-term care needs of their elderly loved ones, one of the big decisions they often face is whether or not to consider alternatives for home living arrangements. Often, as people age, they require immediate medical care, assistance with daily needs and access to a variety of devices that are designed to give them better quality of life. One of the alternatives that many people carefully consider is putting their loved on in a nursing home facility. 

How can I monitor my loved ones' care?

When you have a loved one in a nursing home in New York, it is important to monitor the care he or she receives. This enables you to make sure your loved one is being treated properly. It also helps you stay on top of things and prevent neglect. However, knowing how to properly monitor care is not always easy.

Nursing home employees charged with neglect after patient death

When families in New York opt to put their elderly loved ones in a nursing home facility, their decision is often made with a lot of concern. While they may be looking forward to receiving attentive help with the day-to-day needs of their family members, they are also trusting that the facility and its staff will provide compassionate care.

Health care survey reveals violations at nursing home

Nursing homes were designed to provide a place for elderly folks who require assistance with day-to-day needs. They may also need frequent monitoring, access to general medical treatments and a place to live that is safe and secure. While most families in New York wish to provide this type of compassionate care by themselves, it can be difficult to provide for elderly family members while managing other family obligations and work commitments. Many families put a lot of trust in nursing home facilities to provide their family members with thorough care, but some of these establishments fail to live up to their expectations. 

You can facilitate your loved one's transition to a nursing home

You and your loved one have had many lengthy discussions about his or her wellness and growing need for everyday assistance. However, the decision to begin looking for a nursing home is rarely made without feelings of concern and hesitance. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we are familiar with the risks that residents of nursing homes are subject to and have helped many families in New York to actively protect their loved one's wellbeing. 

Nursing home understaffing issues put residents at risk

When it comes to selecting the right nursing home or retirement community in the New York City area for a loved one, careful consideration must be given to all options. Regardless of how much care and thought one puts into selection, there is still the possibility of their family member experiencing abuse and neglect at the hands of their caregivers. Understaffing is a prevalent problem in nursing homes across the nation. According to U.S. News & World Report, “proper and consistent staff-to-resident ratios are essential” to ensure quality of care and treatment nursing home residents receive. 

Nursing home staff charged with elder abuse, murder

For many New York families, placing their elderly loved one in a nursing home facility is a decision that is not taken lightly. Finding a residence that prioritizes the well-being of its patients is a way to guarantee that disabled elderly persons have access to high quality medical care and assistance with day-to-day needs. However, there are circumstances when elder abuse or neglect can put any patient's life in danger and have damaging consequences.
