Chicago Trial Attorney: Personal Injury and Business Litigation: Nursing Home Abuse

Two nursing assistants were fired from an Oklahoma Nursing Home for abusing a 96-year old dementia patient.

In the disturbing article found here, apparently relatives of the injured patient  — again who suffers from dementia — placed a hidden video camera in their loved one’s room after becoming suspicious that someone was stealing the resident’s belongings. The camera caught footage that allegedly shows the two nursing assistants pushing the patient into bed and holding the patient’s head down onto a pillow and also, in a separate incident, shoving latex gloves into the resident’s mouth and holding them there.

While it is fortunate that these acts were caught on tape by the family, it is important to remember that placing a hidden camera in a nursing home room is always a risky proposition and you should consult with the proper authorities before doing so.

In any event, you should never have to settle for your loved one being victimized in a nursing home, where patients are generally in their most vulnerable state. If you suspect that your loved one is being physically abused or neglected, report your suspicions and contact an attorney immediately.

"There are all kinds of reasons why you might need a lawyer at some point(s) in your life. Whatever the reason, what you want is someone that understands you, advises you properly (hey, our emotions can override our intellect), works hard on your behalf and is willing to go the distance. Phil Berenz is just this kind of lawyer. I had a situation where I needed the assistance of a lawyer and fortunately he was recommended to me. Phil can walk that delicate line of completely understanding --feeling your pain--to giving you the best advice based on his experience. Some lawyers may tell you what you want to hear to run up your fees. Not Phil.
He's a top-notch negotiator and has the patience to build relationships with the opposing side to gain the best benefit for the client. He is very skillful at understanding the psyche of the other parties.
I could go on and on, but basically what I want to say -- if you need a lawyer, call Phil. If he doesn't have the expertise that you require, he'll recommend you to someone that does and you can be sure they will be of a high calibre too."
