Connecticut Physical Assault in Nursing Homes

When nursing home staff physically abuse patients, it turns a safe environment into a torture chamber. The victims of physical abuse in nursing homes are often unable to speak up about what is happening to them or, tragically, unable to find someone who will believe their account.

At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney P.C., we take all allegations of physical abuse in nursing homes seriously. Our lawyers are committed to making sure that abuse survivors obtain justice for what they have been through at the hands of negligent and malicious nursing home staff.

How Could This Happen?

This is perhaps the most common question our attorneys hear from the loved ones of assault survivors. It is unthinkable that people could lash out violently at the most vulnerable people in our society. Unfortunately, it happens far too frequently.

Many cases in Connecticut are linked back to the hiring practices of the nursing home. Hiring people who are not properly educated or trained, or are otherwise ill-equipped to deal with the stresses and demands of a nursing home, is a recipe for disaster. Some nursing homes fail to do proper background checks, exposing nursing home patients to people with a violent criminal record.

Regardless of the reason, it is inexcusable. If your loved one has shown signs of physical abuse, such as bruising, lacerations, cuts, broken bones, black eyes or burns, the time to act is now.
