Examples of Nursing Home Abuse
A Law Firm Focused on Nursing Home Abuse
We help nursing home abuse victims every day
The care and supervision of our mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, and other loved ones are entrusted with nursing homes, assisted living facilities and managed care facilities throughout Ohio. While most of these professional care centers provide excellent care, supervision and quality of life, some nursing homes are not worthy of that trust. It’s a reality that a loved one may become a victim of unexplained injuries, verbal abuse, physical abuse, substandard care, neglect or worse, unexpected death.
Nursing homes and managed care facilities are highly regulated operations. There are specific rules and requirements in place to protect residents and patients. These facilities must satisfy these requirements. However, not all do.
Falls, broken bones, fractures and other injuries occur because staff members do not receive the proper certifications and training. Poor hiring practices may result in some facilities retaining staff members with a history of neglect, abuse and carelessness. Sexual assaults by other residents or employees at the care facility are unthinkable acts but they do happen.
These are just a few examples of what can occur in these nursing home and care facilities. Your loved one deserves the respect and dignity that comes with proper care. A level of service that falls short of that requires action.

“Mr. Delahunty was a superb attorney to work with. I was contacted at every level or step that was being taken. He explained everything to me in detail. He went the extra mile! He investigated and read the reports . He informed me of things that were happening and that were going to happen. He briefed me on what to expect during each step of the way. I was always involved as part of the process, which truly surprised me. Everything was explained in great detail. He took time to listen to me and answered all of my questions. He was not only thorough but I would say aggressive where he needed to be and passionate when he needed to be. He is one of most professional individuals I have ever worked with. I would not hesitate to recommend or retain him again. I cannot say enough about this GREAT attorney. Please do not hesitate to retain him as an attorney when you need one!” – Olson
“I have to tell you this is a GREAT law firm. My mom used them when she felt my grandfather Pops died from negligence at a nursing home. Slater & Zurz listened , kept mom informed, consoled and counseled her, aggressively won the case and gave her and our whole family closure. Pops isn’t here and the only way to get an apology was for them to write the check and with out the expertise of Slater & Zurz we would never of had closure – I recommend them for any one who needs a serious attorney and a GOOD attorney. They left no questions unanswered and I thank them for helping my mom with this horrific incident!” – Red
