Neglect and indifference in nursing homes are not isolated matters. In the most egregious cases of nursing home abuse and neglect, patients are left to lay with no attention for hours at a time, never being moved or cared for. The result is decubitus ulcers, commonly known as bedsores. When a family trusts the care of their loved one to a nursing home, there is absolutely no excuse for this neglect. Bedsores are completely preventable in every case.
At Godosky & Gentile, our experienced lawyers represent people who have been victimized by elder abuse in the Bronx and surrounding areas of New York City. We take on nursing homes and assisted living facilities, holding them accountable for their negligence and pursuing full compensation for the victims of bedsores and other complications.

Common in nursing home abuse and neglect cases, bedsores are always the result of negligence, which often occurs due to understaffed nursing homes or as a result of poor hiring and training practices. At our firm, you can rely on receiving the level of care and attention you deserve, something that cannot be said about the nursing home entrusted for caring for your family member.
