Oklahoma Nursing Home Neglect

With the advances of medicine and a better quality of living, Oklahomans are living longer than ever. Sadly some people are simply not as healthy as others and as the age of our population rises, we are seeing more and more people spending their last years living in nursing homes. Unfortunately, due to understaffing and poor staff training, we find that for many elderly people in Oklahoma, nursing home abuse is a serious problem.

Experienced Oklahoma Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Most people know little about nursing home abuse and neglect or the state and federal laws that regulate such entities. Our Oklahoma nursing home abuse attorneys were among the first in the state aggressively to seek to protect elderly people and explain to their families how to ensure they are getting the best care possible. We have successfully recovered millions of dollars for our clients. It is our hope that our advocacy has also served to inspire reforms in quality assurance of long-term care. We have the skill, experience, and success to effectively represent our clients’ interests and provide remedies for abuse and neglect. Learn more about elder abuse from the U.S. Administration on Aging.

Common Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse Concerns

While nursing homes that receive Medicaid and Medicare are required to undergo a State Survey Complaint Process, there are still deficiencies in the process and unfortunately nursing home abuse still occurs. At McIntyre Law in Oklahoma City & Tulsa, we are committed to ensuring that Oklahoma nursing homes foster a standard level of care for elderly people under their supervision. This is critical because in some cases nursing home residents are unable to speak or are not comfortable telling you about their situation. Therefore, you should look for signs of abuse or neglect. If possible, talk to your loved ones and encourage them to report any issues to you.

Some signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include the following:

  • Bruises and lacerations (cuts)
  • Heavy administration of medication or drugs
  • Lethargy
  • Extreme or rapid weight loss or gain
  • Drastic changes in personality
  • Unexpected illness or death
  • Decubitus ulcers (also known as bedsores or pressure sores)
  • Unexplained bruises and cuts
  • Broken hip or other bones from a fall or assault
  • Starvation
  • Dehydration and Malnutrition
  • Inappropriate Use of Physical Restraints
  • Drug overdose or injury from incorrect medication (or dosage)
  • Physical, Emotional and Psychological Abuse
  • Exposure from wandering off the grounds due to a lack of supervision
