Sexual Abuse

Need Nursing Home Attorneys Who Will Fight For The Elderly?

A study by the National Center on Elder Abuse shows that sexual assault accounts for 7% of all nursing home abuse complaints[1]. We believe that sexual abuse or assault by nursing home staff is the most heinous form of elder abuse. Fragile, helpless victims suffer emotionally and physically and serious medical issues such as sexually transmitted diseases are a real possibility.

Nursing homes have a duty to screen residents and employees to ensure sexual assaults that are preventable do not occur. Nursing home sexual assault cases involve complicated steps that require fighting health care privacy laws in order to obtain the records from third party residents or employees. In addition, to review them to document that the nursing home or assisted living facility should have prevented the assault.
