Category: Nursing Home Neglect

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. On Friday, May 10, 2019.

If you have a loved one in residential care in the state of Pennsylvania, you may naturally worry about their safety and well-being, especially in light of the allegations that we regularly hear coming from this sector. No one wants to believe that the most vulnerable among us—our aging parents and grandparents—may endure abuse at […]

For family members who are trying to look for signs of nursing home neglect, it’s important to remember that it can in some cases be mistaken for the natural aging process. Below are a few signs and symptoms that illustrate how this can happen. 1. Weight loss. An elderly person will often lose weight as […]

We have previously written about the dangers that some elderly Americans face in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Too often, nursing home residents face physical, psychological and even sexual abuse by a staff member or by other residents. And if the victim has dementia or other cognitive difficulties, the abuse often goes unreported. […]

We have previously written about how difficult it can be to put an aging relative in a nursing home. There are feelings of guilt, of course, but there is also worry. Will my loved one receive good care and attention? Will they enjoy living here or hate it? Are there any alternative options? Unfortunately, nursing […]

Advancements in video technology have greatly aided the protection of vulnerable, elderly adults in nursing homes and other care facilities. When family members suspect that their loved one is being abused or neglected, they may secretly place a recording device in the resident’s room. Videos of elder abuse captured by these cameras are often very […]

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s each year, many Pennsylvania families take the time they do not regularly have to visit elderly loved ones living in nursing homes and care centers. Such visits are the highlight of residents’ holiday season and after everyone says their goodbyes, seniors gather round to share all of the news and […]

One of the most difficult decisions a family in Pennsylvania and across the nation is to place an elderly loved one in a nursing home. This can be for a number of reasons from an inability to care for the person or due to finances. While most facilities care for their patients well, nursing home […]

Using arbitration instead of litigation sounds like a good idea on the surface. After all, isn’t it best to resolve nursing home abuse cases as quickly and quietly as possible? Some people don’t believe so. In fact, 34 senators and attorneys general nationwide have banded together in an attempt to ban pre-dispute arbitration agreements from […]

Nursing home facilities provide an essential service for the elderly population, and a service that, according to some predictions, around half of Americans age 65 and older will make use of at some point in their lives. Because most people have to deal with skilled nursing home care at some point, either for a loved […]

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. On Friday, September 4, 2015.

There is a troubling problem that is occurring across Pennsylvania nursing homes that is rarely discussed and that needs to be acknowledged and addressed — that of falls and the use of restraints to prevent them. Nursing home residents who suffer a fall often times sustain serious injuries that could result in a permanent disability, […]
