Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect in Virginia

by Staff Blogger | April 20th, 2017

There are some wonderful nursing home facilities in Virginia, providing compassionate and consistent care to our aging community. That’s how it should be. Older generations deserve to live in a facility that cares for their needs while upholding their dignity all along the way. At Skolrood Law Firm, we wish every facility in Virginia lived up to that high standard, but unfortunately, that’s simply not the case.

It only takes one disgruntled employee or ill-conceived policy to cause significant harm to a nursing home resident, and it can happen at any facility at any time. If you suspect your aging loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, the worst thing you can do is nothing. It’s important to take appropriate action to ensure your loved one is safe and out of harm’s way. That’s step one. Step two is calling an experienced Roanoke nursing home attorney to better understand your rights.
