Abuse and neglect of our country's elderly population is a growing social problem, and we want to arm Kentuckians in the fight against it.
Bowling Green, Kentucky (PRWEB) September 9, 2010
The Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers firm announces the publication of a new informational resource for Kentucky nursing home patients and their families.
The Kentucky personal injury law firm’s website, located at http://www.nursinghomeneglectlawyers.com, provides headline news and feature articles about advocacy issues and legislation affecting nursing homes and their patients.
The user-friendly site also provides phone numbers for reporting suspected nursing home neglect or abuse in Kentucky, and has links to a variety of state agencies and other online resources.
“We’re very proud of how well our new site helps individuals in need of advice about nursing home neglect and abuse to identify avenues toward relief,” said J. Marshall Hughes, who founded Hughes & Coleman with Lee Coleman in 1985.
“Abuse and neglect of our country’s elderly population is a growing social problem, and we want to arm Kentuckians in the fight against it," Hughes said.
The website will track and document nursing home violations, as well as reported accidents and injuries in Kentucky nursing homes. The site includes featured articles, headline news and advocacy issues related to nursing home neglect and abuse.
“Our site will also help family members as they go through the process of selecting a suitable home to care for their elderly loved ones,” Hughes said. “These are complicated issues that people have to deal with, usually after making the extremely difficult decision to place a family member in a nursing home. Our website provides assistance in negotiating these personal challenges.”
