South Miami Nursing Home Abuse
South Miami is a suburban community located in Miami-Dade County in South Florida. Famous for its Cambridge Lawns Historic District, this area of the community has about 30 homes in the Tudor revival and Mediterranean architectural styles. Many of these historic homes date back to the 1920s and are a popular tourist attraction in the area. South Miami is also famous for its restaurants, shops, parks, and attractions.
South Miami also has its share of assisted living facilities designed for the elderly. While many assisted living facilities across Florida are responsible and care for their elderly loved ones, South Miami nursing home abuse and neglect does occur. As more people enter assisted living facilities, the instances of abuse and neglect are on the rise. In Florida alone, more than 71,000 residents live in assisted living and nursing home facilities.
If you suspect that an elderly loved one is the victim of South Miami elder abuse and neglect, it is important to consult a South Miami personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The longer that abuse and neglect goes on, the more likely there is to be serious consequences or even fatalities as a result of abuse and neglect. Abuse and neglect can lead to South Miami slip and fall accidents, medical errors, fatal injuries, and more. Consulting with a South Miami personal injury attorney can ensure that the instances of abuse and neglect are investigated, documented, and that an elderly loved one is taken to a safe facility.
