Assisted Living Abuse and Neglect
Though residents of assisted living facilities (ALFs) may require help and care from others, this should not put them in a position to lose their dignity and well-being. Burnetti, P.A. understands that placing a loved one in an assisted living facility is an emotional choice, based upon the promise of improved quality of life, treatment and care. When this promise is broken and a resident endures abuse, neglect or mistreatment at the hands of those entrusted with their care, attorneys at Burnetti, P.A. seek justice for the vulnerable victim.
Warning Signs of Abuse
Neglect and abuse can take many forms, and may include physical, verbal and sexual abuse. Warning signs may include:
- Bedsores (also known as pressure sores)
- Broken bones
- Poor hygiene
- Soiled bedding
- Frequent crying
- Withdrawal or fear
