Negligencia en residencias de ancianos

Responsabilizar a los cuidadores abusivos

Desgraciadamente, el maltrato en las residencias de ancianos -un tipo de maltrato a las personas mayores- es un problema grave en Estados Unidos.

Si usted sospecha que un ser querido está siendo maltratado, Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, puede ayudarle a tomar medidas legales contra los abusadores por su horrible comportamiento.

Tipos de abusos en residencias de ancianos

Los abogados de Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, especializados en abusos en residencias de ancianos, representan a las víctimas de los siguientes tipos de abusos:

Maltrato físico: Lesión corporal causada por la violencia y la fuerza, incluyendo golpes, palizas, empujones o sacudidas. El maltrato físico incluye la contención o el confinamiento inapropiados de un residente, así como las técnicas de alimentación forzada o el uso indebido de medicamentos.

Abuso emocional: Inflicción de angustia o trauma psicológico. El abuso emocional incluye la agresión verbal, las amenazas, los insultos, la intimidación y el acoso.

Abuso sexual: Contacto no consentido de naturaleza sexual. Los abusos sexuales incluyen violaciones, tocamientos, manoseos y obligar al residente a desnudarse o a ver material pornográfico.

Abandono: Falta de cuidados básicos, como comida, agua, medicamentos e higiene.

Señales de maltrato en residencias de ancianos

Puede ser difícil detectar los signos de maltrato, especialmente si no está en contacto frecuente con su ser querido. He aquí algunos signos de maltrato a los que hay que prestar atención:

  • Moretones, fracturas, laceraciones
  • Otras lesiones inexplicables
  • Mala higiene
  • Llagas en la cama
  • Comportamiento negativo – por ejemplo, alterado, agitado, retraído o no comunicativo
  • El deseo de aislarse de los demás

¿Qué debo hacer si sospecho de un abuso?

Si crees que un ser querido está siendo maltratado, debes tomar inmediatamente medidas para salvaguardar su bienestar. Contacta con la policía local para que intervenga. Una vez que su ser querido esté fuera de peligro inmediato, presente una queja contra la residencia de ancianos ante el departamento de salud estatal correspondiente. A continuación, presente una denuncia ante los Servicios de Protección de Adultos del condado donde vive la víctima. Una vez que haya hablado con las autoridades competentes, póngase en contacto con los abogados especializados en abusos en residencias de ancianos de Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, para tratar su caso.

    I can’t say enough about Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and their commitment to providing the best service to their clients. Yelena Delgado made the process seamless and was always available for any questions or concerns. I felt like family every … More step of the way and not one of my questions went unanswered no matter what time of day I reached out. If you are looking for outstanding service, commitment to clients and an unmatched level of legal knowledge look no further than Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC!

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
