Nursing Home Abuse, Neglect, and Medical Malpractice on the Rise in Ohio

Medical malpractice and medical negligence within nursing home facilities represents a very real and growing problem. This month, the Ohio Attorney General announced an increase in allegations of nursing home abuse and neglect in Ohio. In 2013 alone, over 130 cases of nursing home abuse and neglect have been reported due to, primarily, inadequate medical care. This is an increase by almost 60 cases from 2012.

Unfortunately, nursing homes are often the site of negligent, inadequate, or substandard medical care. This negligence often leads to inadequate medical, personal, or nutritional care. Ohio has laws to protect nursing home residents, but having an attorney on your side to assert those rights can be critical in the seeking for justice for your injuries. Leeseberg & Valentine is committed to helping victims of medical malpractice and nursing home abuse, as well as their families, and to holding the nursing home and medical profession responsible for their negligent care.
