San Antonio Nursing Home Attorneys

We rely on nursing homes to provide a safe and caring environment for loved ones who are no longer able to live independently at home. Unfortunately, some facilities fail to live up to the promises in their glossy brochures.

At Marynell Maloney Law Firm, PLLC, in San Antonio, Texas, our lawyers have more than 30 years of experience representing people who are injured in nursing homes and other elder care facilities. No matter how your loved one was injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Understaffing And Nursing Home Injuries

Most injuries in nursing homes can be traced to issues such as understaffing, inadequate training or inadequate screening of employees. The following are examples of nursing home injuries that should never happen in a facility that is adequately staffed:

  • Bedsores from failure to reposition an immobile patient
  • Medication errors, including overmedication, undermedication and giving residents the wrong medication
  • Falls due to failure to assist residents
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Elopement (allowing resident to wander away from the facility)
  • Physical or sexual abuse

These injuries can be avoided when nursing homes are committed to proper staffing to protect the well-being of their residents. Our attorneys can help you create accountability and help you protect your senior loved one from further harm.

The following pages provide more information about nursing home neglect and abuse:

  • Dangers of national chains: Texas laws allow national nursing home chains to operate at minimal staffing levels, creating an environment that is ripe for abuse and neglect.
  • Arbitration agreements: Many nursing homes ask residents to sign a contract agreeing to arbitration of injury claims. These agreements may not be binding, however.
  • Elderly abuse: Physical and sexual abuse of seniors in nursing homes happens far more often than we would like to believe.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect FAQ: Find answers to commonly asked questions about nursing home abuse.
