Humphrey Law Firm, P.C. Iowa Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Attorney
We trust Iowa nursing homes and assisted living facilities to take care of our loved ones. We expect them to provide our parents and grandparents with the level of respect, care and attention that they deserve. Yet, every year, thousands of elderly Americans are injured because of elder abuse and negligence while in the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility.
At Humphrey Law Firm, we use our passion for justice and over three decades of personal injury experience to represent the elderly and their families in lawsuits against Iowa nursing homes and assisted living facilities to hold nursing homes accountable for their actions.
As nursing homes continue to cut costs to meet their financial bottom line, they hire less qualified staff at lower wages, leaving the more qualified nursing home personnel to look for better paying employment. Often times, nursing homes are either chronically understaffed or have employees that have little experience or training that put residents at risk for injuries or even death.
Improper or absent care, unsanitary conditions, or poorly maintained facilities can have grave consequences for vulnerable residents. Because nursing home residents are of advanced age, negligence and carelessness on the part of healthcare workers that sometimes goes unnoticed, often results in untold suffering and a resident’s rapid decline or untimely death. Iowa families deserve better treatment for the family members we care about and love.
If your elderly loved one has been hurt because of negligent care, contact our Des Moines office for immediate help at 515-331-3510.
