Nursing Home Abuse

It’s all over the Fort Lauderdale news—ALL THE TIME. It seems we have almost become immune to it. Yes, nursing home neglect and elder abuse are a widespread problem in Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors and across South Florida. Abuse affects thousands of seniors every year; the same seniors who depend on the long-term care facilities, assisted living and nursing homes they’ve entrusted for the care and attention they need and deserve.

Joe Wagoner is a passionate and highly experienced South Florida nursing home abuse attorney. Joe knows that abuse or negligence at a long-term care facility can take many forms, including:

  • Hitting
  • Kicking
  • Restraining
  • Punching
  • And the unfathomable sexual abuse of a senior

We know how devastating it is for the family of an elder to realize that their loved one is the victim of neglect or abuse because the nursing home has failed to provide adequate medical care, nutrition, or the most basic human courtesy: hygiene.

Know the signs of nursing home neglect, which include:

  • Substantial weight loss
  • Unexplained slip or fall
  • Constant dehydration
  • Infections that keep coming back
  • Poor hygiene
  • Bedsores, and
  • Skin lesions
