According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, it is nearly impossible to know how many residents of nursing homes are being mistreated. Many instances of nursing home abuse and neglect are unreported, particularly in cases where the victim does not receive frequent visits from family members. If you have a loved one in a care facility, it is important that you visit as often as possible to check on his or her wellbeing. If you suspect mistreatment, Seattle nursing home abuse attorney Stephen Hornbuckle is here to take your case and help protect your loved one from harm.

Signs of nursing home abuse may include unexplained injury such as cuts, bruises, and broken bones. However, these sings are not always immediately noticeable. When you visit your loved one, consider their behavior. Have they developed any new and unusual habits? Do they seem scared around nursing home staff or withdrawn from the community? These things can indicate abuse and should be brought to the attention of an experienced nursing home attorney right away.
