Mixing Populations in Nursing Homes Can Lead to Serious Injuries
Not all nursing home residents are harmless and docile. Nursing homes bear an obligation to separate dangerous residents from the rest of the population. Failure to do so can make life miserable for innocent and helpless elderly residents. If someone you love has suffered as a result of negligent population mixing at a nursing home, the experienced lawyers at The Breslo Law Firm are here for you.

The Dangers of Mixing Populations
At The Breslo Law Firm, we help people with a wide range of nursing home neglect claims, including those involving mixing populations. Failure to properly supervise nursing home residents may place them in peril by exposing them to dangerous fellow residents as well as staff members.
If a resident has a history of violence or sexual aggression, it is necessary for nursing home staff to separate that person from other residents. Failure to take these measures exposes helpless elderly residents to physical violence and in some cases, sexual abuse. Adding to the problem is the fact that many nursing home residents are unable to communicate the harm that is being done to them. This is why warning signs must be addressed quickly and proactively.
We understand how hard it is to find out your loved one has suffered in this way. Our lawyers will do everything in their power to help and protect your loved one from these destructive practices in the future.
