“OUR RESPONSIBILITY START NOW”…We hope you never need the services of a Nursing Home Neglect Attorney in Oklahoma and when the decision is made to place a loved one in a nursing home, it is believed that is done for the best interest of that loved one who now needs skilled medical care. You trust and depend on the nursing home to provide that care in a prudent and responsible manner. However, many nursing homes just take the money and do not provide the necessary elderly care. Your trust is breached and your loved one’s health and life are sacrificed.
Few people are as helpless as those confined to live in a licensed nursing home facility. Like toddlers in a daycare, their rights are restricted and their ability to care for themselves is limited. Thus, the reason that the nursing home is hired to provide a necessary care and a safe environment. When the nursing home does not, nursing home neglect occurs.
There are many signs nursing home neglect: foul smeels, dirty residents, ringing call lights and unclean rooms.
