Compassionate Attorney Helping Victims of Nursing Home Abuse in Bexar County

When your loved ones are at their most vulnerable, you might entrust their care to nursing home professionals. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect in these facilities are much too common. You may have concerns about the training of the staff at a facility or the adequacy of care. This type of abuse could include hitting, restraint, sexual assault and verbal assault. What should you do when you suspect wrongdoing? Your first step should be to watch closely for signs of abuse and record your findings. The next step should be to speak to a nursing home abuse attorney about your suspicions. Contact a legal professional at the Law Offices of Janice Maloney in Bexar County.
