Nursing Home Abuse in Huntsville, Alabama

There are over 240 nursing homes with over 25,000 residents in the state of Alabama. As the number of nursing home residents increases, the number of nursing home abuse and neglect cases increases, also. Although most nursing homes are regulated by the Nursing Home Reform Act, abuses still take place every day. Shamefully, Alabama nursing homes have a very poor record of providing quality nursing home care for our elderly citizens.

Many nursing homes choose to cut operating costs by reducing staff levels and hiring under-qualified staff which leads to overworked and underpaid caregivers giving substandard care which in turn leads to emotional and physical abuse of the nursing home residents. Nursing home residents are the victims of nursing home facilities that place profits over the welfare of those given over to their care.

Substandard care leads to nursing home residents falls, bed sores, malnutrition and dehydration, medication errors and physical and emotional abuse. The dedicated Alabama nursing home abuse attorneys at The Cochran Firm have fought tirelessly for the right of every nursing home resident to receive respectful and adequate care and treatment, and to hold those responsible for abuses legally and financially accountable.
