Salt Lake City Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers

We Fight for Victims of Elder Abuse & Neglect

Nursing homes and other long-term elder care facilities are responsible for providing a high standard of care to residents. In fact, when we make the difficult choice to place an elderly loved one in the care of a professional facility, we reasonably expect our loved ones to be treated with the care and respect they deserve. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is an ugly reality in our country, with nursing homes and long-term care facilities from coast to coast being plagued by reports of abuse and neglect.

At Lowe Law Firm, we believe that nursing home negligence is never acceptable. Facilities and staff that provide substandard care or who outright abuse elderly residents should be held legally responsible for the harm they cause. Our Salt Lake City nursing home negligence lawyers are prepared to fight for you and your loved one. Throughout the process, we provide compassionate, personalized legal guidance and tireless advocacy in our pursuit of the justice and recovery you deserve.

Common Signs of Nursing Home Negligence

If your loved one is a resident of a nursing home or similar facility, it is important that you are aware of any signs of potential problems. Your loved one may be unable to speak up about abuse or neglect they are experiencing; in many cases, family members are the ones who report and put a stop to these actions.

Some of the most common signs of nursing home negligence include:

  • Unexplained changes in weight
  • Malnutrition/dehydration
  • Untreated illnesses and infections
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
  • Falls
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Unsanitary premises
  • Medication errors
  • Wandering
  • Asphyxiation
  • Fractures/broken bones
  • Unexplained death

Additionally, signs of nursing home abuse may include:

  • Bruises, scrapes, and other superficial or serious injuries
  • Signs of chemical (drug) or physical restraint
  • Unusual changes in behavior, such as irritability, crying, or apparent fear
  • Avoidance of certain staff members
  • Injuries to or near the genitals or female breasts
  • Changes to a will, trust, or power of attorney
  • Unusual withdrawals from bank accounts or missing money

If you notice any of these or other signs that abuse or neglect may be occurring, it’s important that you act quickly. Report the abuse to the proper authorities and, if necessary, remove your loved one from the home.

How to Report Nursing Home Negligence in Utah

If you or your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you can report the negligence in a number of ways. First and foremost, if you believe your safety or the safety of someone else is in imminent danger, contact 9-1-1 right away. If possible, remove yourself/your loved one from the facility immediately.

In all other cases, the first step in reporting abuse or neglect typically involves filing a report with the facility’s administrator. You may also report non-emergency situations online with Utah Adult Protective Services. You may also call 1 (800) 371-7897 to report elder abuse. By law, anyone who suspects elder abuse or neglect in the state of Utah is required to report it.

Contact Lowe Law Firm for Compassionate Legal Assistance

Once you have ensured that you or your loved one is safe, or in the event that your loved one died due to suspected or confirmed nursing home abuse or neglect, reach out to an experienced nursing home abuse attorney in Salt Lake City to learn more about your legal rights and options. By law, you are entitled to hold negligent nursing homes and long-term care facilities accountable for failing to provide the proper standard of care. While nothing can undo the immense physical and emotional trauma of nursing home abuse or negligence, a personal injury or wrongful death claim can allow victims and their families to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages. A lawsuit can also bring about a sense of justice and help ensure that similar acts do not occur to others in the future.
