Nursing Home Abuse

North Dakota Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys & Lawyers

Will you still need me? Will you still feed me? When I’m sixty-four!

Baby Boomers will remember the lyrics from this famous song by the Beatles.  Although being sixty four felt like a LIFETIME – when we were twenty – many of us have gone through the heartache of watching our parents (and maybe even our spouses and children) require nursing home assistance due to failing health or chronic illness.

News programs have made a point of exposing nursing home abuse and neglect because the patient population is one of the most vulnerable and least represented. When a family has to make a decision to place someone into a nursing home for care, the decision has become dramatically more difficult knowing that there is potential for abuse and neglect.

At MWLO, we believe that most nursing homes and care centers try to provide the best quality of care possible. However, there are problems related to running a nursing home. Shortcuts (such as poor staffing, inadequate training and supervision, or inferior maintenance of equipment) can increase the risk of injury to the residents of these homes.

At MWLO, we believe that the vulnerable adults in nursing homes need someone to stand up for their rights. There are applicable standards and regulations to ensure the safety of residents. If these standards are flagrantly ignored or violated, we can help.
