Nursing Home Accident

Arkansas Nursing Home Accident Attorneys

Nursing homes have a medical and ethical responsibility to their patients. When elderly people are abused or neglected, nursing homes are liable for whatever injuries and damages occur to the patient as a result. The personal injury Attorneys of Nolan Caddell Reynolds represent clients in cases where the following warning signs and evidence of nursing home neglect occur:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Ligature marks
  • Serious slips and falls
  • Sexual abuse or assault
  • Prescription drug mistakes
  • Unexplained bruising, lesions

Know the facts

The government has been working for years to improve the conditions of nursing homes, but there is still much to be done. An important milestone was the enactment of the Nursing Home Resident’s Bill of Rights which states that residents have:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right to choose a physician
  • The right to know about medical conditions
  • The right to participate in the plan of care
  • The right to be free from abuse and restraints
  • The right to privacy, dignity, and respect
  • The right to manage personal finances
  • The right to see visitors
  • The right to confidentiality
  • The right to be made aware of services and charges
  • The right to voice grievance without retaliation
  • The right to organize and participate in groups
  • The right to participate in social, religious, and community activities
  • The right to examine reviews
  • The right to remain in the nursing home

Put us to work for you

Nursing homes are licensed by the state and must adhere to state and federal law. Any complaint or incident must be reported by them and all medical records carefully maintained. Our nursing home neglect Attorneys meticulously review nursing home records, the complaints filed against them, as well as any history of poor performance or poor health standards. We track down former employees if necessary, collect eyewitness testimony, and expose the truth. In cases where an improper background check was conducted on an employee with a criminal record, we demand answers – and compensation. At the law office of Nolan Caddell Reynolds, we investigate elder abuse at nursing homes by conducting our own investigation. We subpoena staffing reports, interview witnesses, and review other complaints or citations registered with state licensing authorities. Our elder abuse Attorneys immediately consult medical professionals for a medical evaluation of our client’s condition and injuries, documenting injuries that are clear indications of neglect or physical abuse.
