Resident's asphyxiation, death attributed to nursing home neglect

Many families in Jasper, and elsewhere, count on the round-the-clock, skilled care that most assisted living facilities offer to provide the level of care that their elderly or disabled loved ones require. There are some cases, however, when the facility and care providers entrusted with furnishing that care do not fulfill their responsibilities. Since many residents may not be able to speak up for, or help, themselves, nursing home neglect can easily result in personal injury, worsened medical condition and even death.

Citizens in Alabama and throughout the nation are increasingly aware of and concerned about the level of safety and appropriate care in nursing homes. Nursing home abuse has become an all-too common news topic with horror stories abounding, many of which result in serious personal injury of even death of residents.
