Oklahoma City Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
We Help Families Whose Loved Ones Suffered Unfair Treatment
For families in Oklahoma City and surrounding communities, the decision to put a loved one in a nursing home can be difficult. You want to trust the nursing home staff and administrators to treat your loved one with respect and dignity and protect them from abuse or neglect. You expect the nursing home to uphold a high standard of care. But this does not always happen. Unfortunately, it is possible for a loved one to face abuse or neglect while under the care of a nursing home – either by staff, other patients or visitors. Sometimes nursing home abuse or negligence may lead to the death of your loved one.

How Serious is the Nursing Home Abuse Problem in Oklahoma City?
In Oklahoma City alone, families can choose from 78 nursing homes in the metropolitan area. According to U.S. News & World Report, only 12 of these facilities received an overall rating of five stars from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. While a five-star rating can be helpful in deciding on a nursing home, it’s important for families to go to the facility and talk to staff and even families of residents when deciding if it’s the right place for a loved one. Even facilities that get “good grades” have been named in nursing home neglect lawsuits.
