Nursing homes are designed to provide round-the-clock care in a healthy and compassionate environment. The purpose of nursing care facilities is to help meet the daily needs of individuals, including elderly and/or disabled adults, who can no longer care for themselves. It is often difficult for a family to determine that it is time for their loved one to move into a nursing home but sometimes, it is the best choice to ensure they are cared for. Sometimes, nursing homes are the perfect answer and provide peace of mind that the loved one will be receiving the care they require. However, there are a lot of unfortunate situations where a loved one suffers abuse or neglect while residing in a nursing home. If you or a loved one was injured at the hand of a nursing care facility, it is important to retain the services of an experienced attorney that can help you hold the nursing home accountable.

Like any other personal injury case, the plaintiff will be required to prove that the nursing home was negligent and that this negligence ultimately resulted in their injuries. Of course, it can be difficult to prove injuries so it is important to preserve all possible evidence. In addition, it is necessary to save all records of communication with the nursing home and the agencies that manage it.
As soon as signs of neglect become apparent in a nursing home, it is important to notify the residence management as well as the agencies that enforce nursing home standards in the state of Nevada. Some of the ways to preserve evidence in addition to collecting communication records include taking pictures and videos of any signs of abuse or neglect.
