Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
At Cantwell Law Firm we recognize the importance of the decision in selecting a healthcare facility and the trust that you've bestowed upon that facility to take care of your loved one.
Federal law requires long term care facilities to properly care for its residents and to provide an environment that promotes maintenance or enhancement of life of each resident. An emphasis is placed on dignity, choice, and self-determination for nursing facility residents. The law requires each long term care facility to provide services and activities that will result in or maintain the highest level of practical physical, mental and psychosocial well-being of each patient.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of improper care in a nursing home or healthcare facility, contact us today to evaluate your case.
