When Hunger And Thirst Go Unaided
Among a nursing home’s most basic requirements is ensuring the proper nutrition and hydration of its residents. When staff members fail to do so, innocent residents are left to suffer, often in silence. In tragic cases, the prolonged deprivation of food and water can even lead to an agonizing and prolonged death.
If your loved one has suffered dehydration or malnutrition in a nursing home in Towson or anywhere in Maryland, The Law Offices of Gregory L. Lockwood, LLC, is here to help you seek justice and compensation on his or her behalf. Attorney Greg Lockwood has a proven record of success obtaining exceptional legal outcomes for victims of negligence and their family members. We care about people and use aggressive legal advocacy to protect our most vulnerable loved ones.
What Caused This Suffering?
Malnutrition and dehydration often occur when nursing home staff members are not trained to identify warning signs, or when there are simply too few staff members to adequately care for the residents. We are skilled at identifying the root causes of malnutrition, dehydration and other forms of nursing home abuse, and we use our investigative resources to apply maximum pressure on nursing homes that failed to fulfill their most fundamental obligations.
What Drives Us
These cases hit hard because we all know what it’s like to be hungry or thirsty. When the person suffering is a loved one and unable to express his or her needs, and the hunger and thirst continue for hours and even days, it creates an almost unthinkable situation.
But as long as this type of negligence happens, we must take action to help those who suffer. The best way to prevent more nursing home residents from suffering in the same manner is to hold all negligent parties accountable. This is the driving purpose of our law firm.
