Hawaii Elder Neglect Attorney

Neglect in Hawaii Nursing Homes

The staffs of nursing homes are legally responsible for the health and well-being of the residents who are entrusted to their care. Elder neglect in nursing homes often leads to emotional stress, physical injury or illness and in some cases, wrongful death. Examples of neglect include failures to provide clean quarters with proper air and light, as well as failure to administer medicine on schedule and in the prescribed dosages. Elder neglect extends to cases where the staff provides insufficient food and water to the resident or fails to keep their daily needs met.

In 1987 the United States Congress passed the Nursing Home Reform Act, which includes a Residents' Bill of Rights. If you suspect that a family member has had their rights violated and has been victimized through neglect or nursing home abuse, you may be able to take legal action against the nursing home. A Hawaii personal injury attorney can consult with you regarding the case to determine the best course of action for seeking damages. Some of the common indicators of elder neglect include sudden declines in the health and well-being of the victim, unexplained bruises or injuries and emotional detachment.
