Alarmingly, nursing home negligence and abuse affect more than a million nursing home residents each year. Typical grievances include bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, gangrene, over-sedation, theft, abandonment, sexual assault, mental abuse and physical abuse. Severe health problems and fatalities can result.
Medicare and Medicaid have established guidelines that nursing homes must follow if they wish to provide services utilizing these government programs. Our Cedar Rapids Nursing Home Abuse attorneys at VanDerGinst Law have a high level of expertise regarding the nursing home requirements laid out in the Social Security Act and can assist you if a friend or loved one has suffered abuse at the hands of his or her nursing home care takers.
