Entrusting the life and well-being of a loved one to the care of a nursing home is often an unavoidable choice and a leap of faith. We do so because they need constant care and supervision. Nursing home neglect and abuse is inexcusable and it can quickly turn deadly or cause permanent harm. Neglect, by the way, is a form of abuse. The Madison nursing home abuse lawyers of Boller & Vaughan LLC are dedicated to stamping out long-term care abuse and neglect, and we have made significant progress in doing so. If you suspect that your loved one has been or is currently the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, please get in touch with us right away. Boller & Vaughan is a nationally renowned Wisconsin law firm. We handle nursing home abuse, Assisted Living abuse, and CBRF neglect with a track record of results. In fact, our firm recently obtained the single largest verdict in any Wisconsin CBRF case ever: $3.5 million for a victim of CBRF neglect. -Nursing Home Neglect Nursing home neglect can be misunderstood. It may feel unreasonable and like it is asking too much, to you as a capable an independent adult, to expect someone to wait on your loved one “hand and foot” and provide constant 24-hour supervision as you would to an infant. The truth is, that is what many nursing home residents need and why nursing homes exist. For nursing home residents, that level of attention is not a luxury; it is necessary for their survival. -Assisted Living Abuse, CBRF Neglect Attorney It’s difficult to imagine that residents in Assisted Living or CBRF facilities could ever be subjected to cruelty, abuse, or neglect. Our elders deserve the best care — especially when they’re no longer able to care for themselves. -The Difference Between Nursing Homes and Assisted Living/CBRFs in Wisconsin Wisconsin law distinguishes various kinds of care facilities, and different standards apply to each. At Boller & Vaughan, a Madison nursing home abuse attorney can help you understand these differences and whether your facility may have harmed your loved one. Nursing Homes exist to provide in-depth, comprehensive, and 24/7 “nursing” care for people who are no longer able to live on their own. State and federal law require extensive compliance with a number of regulations and a strict duty of care. Our legal team has extensive experience in litigating instances of nursing home abuse and neglect in Wisconsin. Community-Based Residential Facilities (CBRF) are Assisted Living facilities that have been specially designated and licensed by the state of Wisconsin for a specific level of senior health care. Here again, CBRFs are not held to the same standards as nursing homes, but they do have clear responsibilities for conscientious care. Whether your family utilizes CBRF, hospice, nursing homes, Assisted Living, in-home healthcare, or some other such service, you never have to tolerate abuse or neglect.
The attorneys at Boller & Vaughan LLC have a reputation, for their expertise in nursing home abuse, nursing home neglect, and assisted living abuse.
