As part of the government’s investigation on nursing home abuse, the agency released a list of the dangerous Florida nursing homes based upon rates of abuse and/or neglect. Along with also including Florida, the list exposes dangerous facilities nationwide.

About Elder Physical Abuse

Old ManUnfortunately, physical abuse of an elder is more common than most people would think as well. Physical abuse is any force that causes personal injury or pain. This includes striking, hitting, beating, shoving, among other actions. Physical abuse also can mean tying down an elder with unnecessary or brutal restraints that limit movement. This can lead to muscle atrophy and further degeneration of the muscles.
Physical abuse against the elderly may be perpetrated by an acquaintance, doctor, nurse, caregiver, family member or another individual in the life of an elderly person. According to the US National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA), most perpetrators of elder physical abuse are unemployed, single and live with the elder in his or her own home.

Dangerous Florida Nursing Homes List

For years, the federal government has not been transparent in allowing the public to know which nursing homes have serious ongoing health, safety or sanitary problems. However, now the Senate released a report highlighting 400 facilities with a “persistent record of poor care”. Experts think this list is very small, but due to budget cuts, there are reduced financials available for focused inspections.

Get Justice for a Loved One

Sad Old WomanIf you suspect abuse or neglect, do not accept denials. Instead, contact a knowledgeable lawyer experienced with representing victims. When an abuser injures a resident at a care facility, it is not always obvious what happened and legal liability.  The evidence available is often incomplete and may be self-serving for the defendant – the nursing home.
