When New Yorkers place their elderly loved ones in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, they do so with the expectation that the care received will be exemplary. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.

The list of abuses and substandard care that occur in nursing home and assisted living facilities can fill many volumes. 

Facility failures and the resulting tragic consequences to residents exist because too many facilities are more concerned with profits than with the people in their care. Below are just a few of the most pressing problems:

Bed Sores

Bed sores are skin ulcers that can sometimes go down to the bone. They are horribly painful and, once established, difficult to treat and cure. Insufficient staffing and inadequate training are the key causes of bed sores.

Fall & negligence

All too often nursing home slip-and-fall accidents are the result of substandard care. Patients suffer falls that could have been prevented with proper care.

Malnutrition & dehydration

Many elderly patients are unable to adequately feed themselves and need assistance in cutting and eating their food.

Freezing in winter, stifling in summer

The elderly are convenient victims. Taking advantage of the frequent inability of residents to voice complaints, facility operators maximize profits by keeping temperatures extremely low in the winter and extremely high in the summer.

High turnover, Poor Staffing

Many nursing home and assisted living facility employees are minimum wage workers with little training or experience. They have minimal incentive to provide quality care for the elderly. 

medication errors

All too often, nurses and physicians at nursing homes use medication as a way to make their lives easier. They have learned from practice that drugging their patients is a way to keep them quiet, manageable and subdued.

I was very pleased with their representation and overall service.

"The nursing home that took care of my father fought us hard on his wrongful death. I was really impressed with RGLZ's knowledge and experience in nursing home abuse and negligence, and was very pleased with their representation and overall service. I would absolutely recommend them."
