Nursing home abuse and neglect is more common than many Texans realize, and few families are prepared for what to do when they believe their loved one has been harmed by their treatment in a nursing home. You’ve done your best to ensure that your loved one is cared for, and the facility violated your trust and neglected or abused your loved one.
The attorneys at Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C.’s Brownsville office strongly believe that those who cause nursing home abuse should be held accountable. We’ll help you protect your elderly loved one and demand justice and compensation.
A January 2017 report by AARP Texas found the quality of the state’s nursing homes on average was “shamefully poor.” In October of the same year, the Austin Chronicle reported that 25% of the 1,200 long-term care centers in Texas had been cited for serious standard deficiencies. U.S. News & World Report lists 1,235 nursing homes in Texas, only 37 of which received an overall Top Performing rating.
