Tips To Prevent Patient Abuse in Michigan Nursing Home

Nursing home abuse and neglect describe a situation in which a nursing home care provider failed to treat a patient at a reasonable standard expected from a care provider under those conditions. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 65.5 percent of abuse was done by a male stranger, compared to 29.2 percent being females. In addition, 86.6 percent of abuses by a male friend or male acquaintance occur, compared to 40 percent that are female. These statistics are frightening, but true.

Our Michigan nursing home abuse lawyers handle cases involving nursing home negligence for residents who suffer injuries and resident’s family members who have lost a loved one in a Michigan health care facility such as a nursing home, hospital, adult foster care facilities, and assisted living facilities.
