Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

West Palm Beach Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Attorney

Placing a loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility is a decision that families take very seriously. Most families visit the nursing home on multiple occasions, meet with potential care providers, and research the facility’s background. When a family suspects a loved one is being abused or neglected in the facility they so carefully chose, many questions arise. How did this happen? What legal options are available? At The Law Offices of Rafael J. Roca, P.A., we strive to find answers to these questions and seek accountability from negligent facilities. Attorney Roca has helped injured people and their families obtain compensation and justice since 1988.

Differentiating Between Abuse and Neglect

Simply stated, abuse and neglect affect nursing home residents in similar manners. Abuse and neglect puts nursing home residents in harm’s way and severely impairs their livelihood. Abuse is the action of inflicting physical harm upon a person. Elder neglect is inaction–failing to perform a necessary task to maintain the safety and health of a resident. Our firm educates clients about the rights and options available to addresses issues of abuse and neglect. These issues include:
