Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

As more Americans become older, the need for adequate long term care for our aging loved ones increases. Unfortunately, the resources and training required to equip and staff facilities to properly care for the elderly may not always meet the ever increasing demand for these needed services. As a result, it seems logical to anticipate a growing number of cases involving abuse and neglect of the most venerable, and vulnerable of us, the elderly. Some of the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect can be bed sores, weight loss, dehydration, improper medication, and injuries from falls.

The South Carolina Board of Health and Environmental Control promulgates regulations and standards applicable to Nursing Home facilities in South Carolina, which seek to protect elderly residents, and which are administrated by the state Division of Health Licensing. Injuries or harm suffered by a resident resulting from abuse, neglect, or the violation of these regulations and standards can give rise to a claim for injuries and damages suffered as a result of inappropriate or unlawful conduct on the part of the facility or its employees.
