Pittsburgh Lawyers For Nursing Home Negligence And Abuse
We entrust nursing home administrators and staff to provide dignity and comfort to our loved ones. Many elder care patients receive that capable and loving care, but nursing homes are businesses. Too often, cost-cutting measures and mismanagement result in devastating harm to vulnerable adults.
The caring lawyers of Rosen & Perry, in Pennsylvania hold nursing homes and other care providers accountable for substandard care resulting in injury, illness or death. By aggressively pursuing compensation for medical intervention and victims’ pain and suffering, we aim to improve the quality of care for all nursing home patients.

Medical Malpractice, Negligent Care And Intentional Acts
Nursing home negligence and abuse takes many forms:
- Bedsores (pressure ulcers) from neglect of bedridden patients
- Fractures or head trauma when patients fall from lack of assistance
- Medication errors and over-sedation
- Malnourishment, dehydration and undiagnosed medical conditions
- Sexual abuse or physical assault by staff (or other residents)
- Physical restraints or “parking” patients
- Emotional abuse — humiliation, intimidation or threats
- Financial exploitation or theft of property
In addition to nursing homes, we investigate cases involving mistreatment by assisted living facilities, home health care aides and family caregivers.
