Davie Nursing Home Abuse
Davie is a community located in southern Florida's Broward County. With many green spaces, Broward is a community with about 35 miles and more than 90,000 residents. With a unique rural atmosphere, Davie has a rich agricultural past that is still seen in the city's more than 165 miles of trails. The city is also known for its wonderful schools and its large educational complex.
Davie, like the rest of Florida, has a graying population. As more of the area's residents age, there is more demand for the services of nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. While most of these facilities work hard to ensure that residents are treated with the respect and care they deserve, Davie nursing home abuse and neglect is a serious problem for any family considering placing their loved one in an assisted living facility.
The Flaxman Law Group is a full-service law firm with experience in nursing home abuse and neglect. The legal team at the Flaxman Law Group understands that neglect and abuse at assisted living facilities occurs when personnel fail to act to take care of residents' needs properly. Neglect can involve something as simple as forgetting to turn bedbound individuals over, leading to bedsores, which can become life-threatening if they become infected or lead to sepsis. Davie slip and fall accidents are also a common nursing home hazard in areas where assisted-living facility personnel do not help elderly residents with walking or with bathroom assistance. According to the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention about 1800 residents of nursing homes across the country die each year due to slip and fall accidents.
The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration is the agency in charge of licensing and overseeing nursing homes in the state. The organization also takes care of complaints filed against nursing homes that may be in violation of standards of care. The number of complaints and citations against nursing home and assisted living facilities in the state is staggering. The agency cited 184 complaints in the state in 2010 alone.
