Private Pay Abuse

Experienced Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Greenville

When you put your elderly loved one into a private pay facility, you trust that he or she will receive better treatment and care than a standard Medicaid facility. Sadly, this is not always true. At Christian & Christian, we are passionate about holding nursing home staff accountable for abuse or neglect. Whether you pay with Medicaid, insurance, or out of your own pocket, your loved one deserves to be treated with care, respect, and dignity. It is important to call our Greenville nursing home abuse lawyers at (864) 408-8890 to begin building your case. We provide free consultations for your convenience.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Physical abuse includes punching, kicking, slapping, pushing, or spitting on an elderly resident. Sexual abuse may involve forced nudity or rape, and emotional abuse may involve belittling, manipulating, yelling at, demeaning, or verbally abusing a patient. Whatever the situation, your loved one deserves justice from those responsible.

There are several warning signs of abuse, including:

  • Signs of restraints on wrists and ankles
  • Bloody or torn underwear
  • Unexplained bruises or welts
  • Broken eyeglasses
  • Fear of certain staff members
  • Moodiness or depression
  • Broken bones
  • Unexplained STDs or genital infections
  • Unusual behaviors or emotional changes

Elderly nursing home residents may not have the strength to defend themselves, and they may be too embarrassed or lack the mental capacity to tell someone about their abuse or neglect. Making regular visits to your loved one, and having honest communication can help you determine if abuse or neglect is taking place. It is important to pay attention to the warning signs, and to act quickly if you suspect abuse in a private pay facility. You need to move your loved one to a different location right away, and notify the facility management. You also need to file a police report and get in touch with our Greenville private pay abuse attorneys, who will work diligently to build your case.
