nursing home, not only is there a breach of trust between the caretakers
and families, but the resident's well-being is also put at risk.

Common Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
Part of what makes nursing home abuse and neglect so alarming is that it
commonly occurs to victims who are already in a frail state of health.
This type of treatment can have devastating and even long-term effects
for the victims who, in many case, cannot fend for themselves.
Typical types of nursing home injuries include:
- Bedsores (or "pressure ulcers")
- Medication errors
- Falling/transportation injuries
- Injuries resulting from staff mishandling
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
In many cases, the discovery of these kinds of injuries or abuse calls
for the immediate relocation of the resident while families work with
legal counsel on filing suit. At The Law Office of Michael R. Loewen,
our Sacramento nursing home abuse lawyer can help you with the transition,
ensure that your loved one receives the care they need at a proper facility,
and tirelessly work to recover the compensation your family deserves for
his inexcusable behavior.
