When a loved one enters a nursing home, you should expect and demand to be kept apprised of his or her condition. Should cuts and bruises develop over the course of an elderly resident’s stay in a nursing home, the staff has a responsibility to provide you, as the primary caregiver, with an explanation of how these injuries occurred. If they are unable to do so, you have a right to investigate. Fortunately, with the lawyers at the Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC on your side, you do not need to do this investigating on your own. For over forty years, our attorneys have defended the rights of nursing home residents and their families. If a nursing home staff cannot or will not explain an injury to your loved one, let us help you find an answer.
