Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in Queens, New York


We all want our cherished loved ones to spend their autumn years in peace and tranquility. A comfortable retirement should be a reward for a life well-lived. As some people age, medical conditions make it impossible to remain at home or live with family. Sometimes entrusting a loved one’s care to a skilled nursing home or long-term care facility is the best way to maintain their health and ensure a safe standard of living. 

But when these nursing homes and facilities do not follow rigorous care and safety standards, the physical and mental health of their elderly residents is jeopardized. Some facilities and caregivers fall into a systematic pattern of abuse or neglect, harming the residents they are supposed to protect.

Queens Nursing Home Abuse Statistics and Data 

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that at least one in six people over the age of 60 will experience some form of abuse in a community setting in their lifetime. This data aligns closely with recent statistics that suggest one in five elderly residents is mistreated in New York nursing homes. 

According to statistics from the New York Department of Health compiled over four years, complaints of abuse and neglect in New York nursing homes are steadily rising. Complaints of neglect also increased significantly as the COVID-19 pandemic overwhelmed nursing home facilities throughout the state.
