McAlester Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Nursing home abuse and neglect has typically been defined as improper or insufficient medical care or emotional/physical abuse by care facility staffers. But there is a new type of elder abuse that the American Association of Retired Persons refers to as resident-to-resident violence (RRV).

There has been an increase in the number of cases involving patients who lashed out at roommates or fellow residents and caused serious physical and emotional harm. One brutal RRV incident in Minnesota resulted in one resident murdering another resident.

Convicted felons and other predators working in nursing homes have also caused numerous injuries to residents of care facilities and in some tragic instances it has led to cases of wrongful death.

Nursing homes have a responsibility to perform due diligence when evaluating potential hires. If they have not fulfilled their obligation to conduct background checks to ensure the safety of your loved one and as a result, they were injured or killed, contact Gotcher | Beaver, Attorneys at Law to arrange a free initial legal consultation with one of our skilled nursing home abuse lawyers. We will discuss the circumstances surrounding the injury or death of your loved one and advise you of your legal rights and the options available to you.
