Reading, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/22/2019 -- When families place a loved one in a nursing home, they do so with faith and trust that the facility's staff possesses the qualifications, experience, and compassion necessary to provide proper care. Unfortunately, some families later find that their trust has been betrayed, and their loved one has suffered physically or mentally — maybe even died — due to neglect by the staff.
Pennsylvania law sets clear standards for nursing home care and protects the rights of nursing home residents. When those standards aren't met or rights are violated, families may be entitled to compensation.

Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C. encourages families to be vigilant regarding their loved ones' well-being while in the care of a nursing home. The common warning signs of neglect or abuse can include unexplained changes in mood, sudden weight loss, bedsores, bruises or cuts, and repeated falls. Any noticeable difference in how a loved one is behaving or in his or her physical appearance should be reported to nursing home staff immediately, but it helps to consult with a legal professional who can advise on the proper course of action should problems persist.
