Nursing Home Neglect

The Senate Special Committee on Aging estimates there are as many as 5 million victims of elder abuse in America each year. This is an especially worrisome statistic in Florida with its large elderly population and its numerous nursing home facilities. Many times nursing home facilities are understaffed or they are staffed with employees who may or may not be qualified in caring for elderly people. The attorneys of Brush & Coyle are well versed in nursing home neglect cases. If one of your loved ones is in a nursing home and you believe or suspect that neglect or abuse has occurred, contact Brush & Coyle to find out how to protect them.

Signs of neglect to be on the look out for are:
