Indianapolis Nursing Home Injury Attorneys
Seeking Protection & Justice for Vulnerable Loved Ones
As our population gets older, more people will rely on nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to provide their health care. Like other medical professionals, nursing home staff members are expected to maintain a certain level of care to protect the people living in their facility. Sadly, abuse and nursing home injuries are not uncommon.
Nursing home injuries can occur because of failure to maintain the required level of care. This level of negligence can lead to bedsores, also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers, malnutrition, falls and broken bones, and abuse. In many cases, negligence occurs as a result of inadequate training, lack of supervision, inadequate staffing, or improper hiring practices.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home injuries, or have been injured by negligent conduct in a nursing home, it is important to act quickly to protect your rights.

Abuse and neglect can be both physical and mental. Nursing home abuse and neglect can be found in a number of areas:
- Improper nutrition and hydration
- Poor personal hygiene
