When Sexual Abuse Occurs In Nursing Homes
Sexual abuse at nursing homes and assisted living facilities is on the rise. The failure of nursing homes and assisted living facilities to properly screen potential employees by conducting criminal background checks and the failure to spot signs of sexual abuse or sexual assault are primary causes of sexual abuse of patients.
At Albert Buzzetti and Associates, our attorneys will aggressively pursue compensation for you or your loved ones if abuse or a sexual assault has occurred at a nursing home or assisted living facility. By aggressively pursuing compensation for victims of sexual abuse/assault, it is our firm belief that policies and procedures of nursing homes and assisted living facilities will be strengthened so as to prevent future incidents.
Our experienced trial attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home and assisted living residents. We make sure that the rights of residents are protected by making it clear to providers of senior care that they cannot cut corners at the expense of patient safety.
