Buckfire & Buckfire’s team of top rated nursing home lawyers have earned the trust of Michigan injury and accident victims to win their case since 1968. They understand that patients living in nursing homes who are abused and neglected need a fair fight, and hiring a top lawyer is the best way to combat and win their case. Winning settlements in over 95% of their cases, the nursing home lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire are willing to handle cases without the client paying a single penny until they win their case. They call this their “No Fee Promise,” and they offer this promise to all nursing home neglect victims.
Families place a tremendous amount of trust when placing their loved one in the care of a nursing home facility and its staff. When checking into nursing homes, it is important to do research. Just because a nursing home has a clean lobby and nice admissions center does not mean that the facility itself provides the appropriate care needed. Always make sure the facility does not have any previous violations for nursing home neglect and abuse, particularly “immediate jeopardy” violations. “Immediate Jeopardy” violations, also known as IJ’s, are the most serious violations a nursing home can face. A nursing home is charged with an IJ when inspectors find serious harm to a resident or the immediate threat of such harm.
Some of the most common causes of nursing home neglect and abuse in Michigan nursing homes include failure to turn or move immobile patients, failure to bathe patients, failure to supervise patients in baths and showers, failure to monitor nutrition and hydration/dehydrations, verbal abuse of residents, patients wandering away from the facility, failure to use bed rails, and much more.
Being alert of the signs of nursing home abuse is recommended so that one knows if their loved one is actually being abuse or neglected. Some of these signs include, but are not limited to, pressure sores or bed sores, infections (including gangrene), unexplained falls resulting in broken bones, medication errors, fractures (frequently hips), decubitus ulcers, sepsis, and residents wandering away from the Michigan facility.
