Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

The trust you placed in a nursing home to care for an elderly or disabled loved one is shattered when acts of neglect or abuse come to light. When searching for a facility for your loved one, you never expected the stay to result in injury or death.

With a rapidly aging population comes an increase in instances of abuse or neglect. If your family member has suffered serious injuries due to physical violence, take immediate action by contacting a lawyer at the law office of Hobbie & DeCarlo, P.C. For residents of Eatontown and Monmouth County, we take nursing home abuse cases on a contingency basis.

The Emotionally Charged And Legally Complex Issues In Nursing Home Abuse Claims

Nursing home negligence involves staff and administration failing to provide basic necessities and appropriate care. Negligent acts can take the form of:

  • Falls leading to serious injuries
  • Bed sores
  • Improper medication
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Lack of supervision
  • Lack of restraints
  • Lack of sanitary conditions


Nursing home abuse can take many forms that include physical, emotional or sexual acts. Some residents suffer exploitation from a staff member taking, misusing or concealing money or property. In those cases, we review nursing home training processes and hiring practices, specifically conducting background checks.
