Omaha Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Fight for the Justice Your Loved One Deserves! Call (402) 810-8611
When you place a loved one in the care of a nursing home, you should expect their needs will be met and they will be cared for as promised. Unfortunately, negligence, mistakes and outright indifference in nursing homes can result in painful and life-changing injury or death to a vulnerable resident. Although many state and federal regulations, such as the Nebraska Nursing Home Act, have been established to protect the elderly in these settings, serious violations occur every single day in nursing homes which tragically compromise the health, well-being, and lives of our state’s oldest residents.

Nursing Home Abuse Injuries
Nebraskans should be proud of the care our elderly residents receive in nursing homes throughout our state. However, all too often, we are contacted by family members who were surprised to discover that basic nursing home care was not delivered and a disaster occurred. Nursing home abuse and negligence come in many different forms, including:
- Bed sores, pressure sores and decubitus ulcers
- Unsupervised wandering and elopement from secured areas
- Unexplained or avoidable falls
- Physical or sexual assault
- Medical errors or mistakes
- Clogged breathing tubes or broken medical equipment
- Choking deaths
We expect the medical staff at a nursing home will treat our loved ones with the utmost care and provide them with the medical treatment and services they need. Unfortunately, when nursing home abuse and negligence occurs, families are left alone to deal with the consequences.
