According to announcements released by O'Malley Tunstall PLLC - Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers, neglect by long-term care facilities can have severe repercussions for the elderly. Such neglect includes more than physical actions and mental and financial harassment. The North Carolina law firm of O'Malley Tunstall PLLC offers legal help and counsel to those who think their loved one is not being treated correctly at a nursing home.
Apart from the residents of assisted living homes, the staff too can conduct themselves in a manner that jeopardizes the well-being of a person.
Signs of nursing home neglect and mistreatment include bedsores, a preference for seclusion and avoidance of social activities, expenses that don't add up, weight loss, listlessness, distress, and fractures.
O'Malley Tunstall PLLC recommends that a law firm focusing in this niche of personal injury be contacted immediately if a resident is not allowed to meet with family or be left alone for private conversations.
