Nursing Home Abuse Cases in Colorado

Defending the Rights of Individuals in Denver Elder Care and Throughout the State

When you check your loved one into a nursing home or hire a caregiver to watch over someone, you expect a high level of care and attention to be provided. Sadly, this is not always the case. According to Nursing Home Abuse Justice, as many as 24.3% of people have experienced at least one instance of physical abuse while in a nursing home. It is estimated that 5,000,000 people over 60 years old are abused each year—however, these statistics don’t include those who are too afraid or embarrassed to report their abuse, meaning the actual numbers are potentially much higher.

At Frost & Beck, P.C. we believe these numbers are unacceptable. The mistreatment of elderly individuals in the care of others is what we strive to fight against every single day. Our practice, based in the Denver and Boulder areas but serving all of Colorado, was started explicitly to protect those who have been abused in nursing homes by winning justice and compensation for them and their families.

If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected while in the care of a facility or individual who had a responsibility to take care of you, Frost & Beck, P.C. can help. Contact us online or call us at (720) 408-4402.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can take many forms and, in some cases, can be difficult to uncover. It occurs when elderly residents suffer significant harm due to the actions of staff members or caregivers. Nursing home abuse can lead to serious issues such as mental problems, illnesses, and even death.

Types of nursing home abuse can include:

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Signs of nursing home abuse can be physical or emotional. This means that anything from broken bones to your loved one withdrawing from other people can be indicators. If you witness or experience anything unusual, it could be a sign of mistreatment.

Here are some things that may hint nursing home abuse has taken place:

  • Agitation, withdrawal, or fear
  • Bedsores
  • Broken bones
  • Complaints of poor treatment
  • Dehydration or malnourishment
  • Frequent crying
  • Head injuries
  • Improper medication dosages
  • Isolation
  • Poor hygiene
  • Soiled bedding

Talk to your loved one if you suspect they have experienced abuse but remember they may not feel comfortable sharing such painful experiences. Document anything out of the ordinary and photograph any injuries or unsanitary conditions you observe—this information may help your case in the future.

How to Stop Nursing Home Abuse

If you suspect or have evidence of nursing home abuse, speak to someone at the company or facility in a managerial position if you can. Contact the authorities if your loved one is in immediate danger. Then, contact an attorney. A Colorado nursing home abuse lawyer can help you piece together evidence to support your case as well as fight for compensation and punishment on your behalf.

Filing a Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit

A plaintiff in a nursing home abuse lawsuit must prove three things:

  • The nursing home was contractually obligated to provide care

  • The nursing home failed to uphold its duty of care

  • The facts and details presented in the lawsuit resulted from this lack of care

Reasons to file a complaint include:

  • Physical abuse, such as assault
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Neglect
  • Wrongful death
