Nursing Homes and Neglect

Standing up for seniors.

All of our loved ones deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. But too often, we hear stories of people in nursing homes suffering from lack of care, serious falls, or more.

Looking for abuse.

The best way to protect a family member in a nursing home is to regularly check-in on their care. To prevent something more serious issues, it’s important to know what to look for:

  • Bed sores
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Unexplained bruising
  • Routine urinary tract infections

Although falls can happen, the best facilities have protocols and precautions in place to prevent serious injury.

With proper training and staffing, all of these issues are preventable. But if your loved one needs additional medical care after a fall, untreated sores or malnutrition, you may have a case against the nursing home.

Getting more than justice.

At Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci we can help you get answers about the care your loved one receives.  We can help put a stop to these cases of neglect and abuse.

Car Accidents

Spread the word: Distracted driving is a life-taker

Despite what we now know about alcohol\’s effects on driving ability, it took a long time for drivers in the United States to really recognize the dangers of drunk driving.
