Nursing Home Neglect
According to statistics from the Kaiser Foundation, only two states have more registered nursing homes than Ohio. Astonishingly, of the 918 assisted living facilities in our state, the Kaiser group found that 88 percent showed some kind of deficiency during a recent study.
The residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities are among the most vulnerable members of our society and their safety, privacy and dignity are protected by law. Patients and/or their families are usually paying high fees to insure that they receive proper care. Unfortunately, unsafe conditions do exist. When patients are injured or suffer from a lack of care, legal action should be taken.
At Miraldi & Barrett, Co. we've spent more than 60 years fighting for people in Lorain County, Erie County, Cuyahoga County and Huron County who have been injured or neglected in assisted living facilities. People looking for legal help arising out of a nursing home neglect case don't have to look to downtown Cleveland to find skilled, professional legal help. If you are looking for a competent nursing home abuse lawyer, go no farther.

Neglect or abuse at Ohio nursing homes results in a wide array of problems:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Prescription drug errors
- Bed sores, pressure sores (decubitus ulcers)
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Wandering or roaming
- Physical abuse
- Sexual assault
Claims may arise out of caregivers dropping patients, failure to implement fall prevention procedures, patients wandering from the facility due to inadequate supervision or other safeguards, or patients being denied hospital or medical consultations when this care is needed.
