Making the decision to place your loved one into a nursing home or long-term care facility is difficult. You want them to be well cared for in a positive and nurturing environment and you are trusting others to provide that.
If the care facility breaches that trust because of abuse or neglect, Nierman Law, P.L.C. can help you protect your loved one.
A nursing home can be held liable for negligence if it did not provide the appropriate level of care. In some cases, health care workers will actually steal their patients’ prescription medications for their own abuse, leaving the patients vulnerable to serious health problems (see one family’s story). Our legal team can assist you by holding the facility accountable for not proving the level of care set by Iowa law.
