What To Expect After You Call a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer (Pennsylvania)
What can you expect after you call a nursing home injury lawyer?
“Once you’ve communicated with the attorneys, we will schedule an initial interview to evaluate circumstances giving rise to yours or your family member’s suspicion of nursing home neglect or abuse. We will gather all the essential information, such as what medical conditions or disability necessitated the resident’s stay at the long term care facility or nursing home.
We will also schedule an interview with that patient, if the circumstances permit, to discuss with him or her what they’ve encountered at the facility. Simultaneously while we’re doing that, we will be evaluating medical records and getting experts involved to offer their unique insights as to whether the medical requirements are being complied with and whether or not the various standards that apply in these settings are also being adhered to.
The evaluation process also involves assessment of federal, state and Medicare regulations to determine whether the facility is doing what they are required to do, by law, in caring for your loved one. This information, in conjunction with the medical records and expert opinions, often provides the basis to facilitate litigation down the road or necessitate the change that you and your family members are looking for in the standards that are being provided to your loved one at the facility.”
