Sonoma County Nursing Home Ratings

Sonoma County Nursing Home Ratings & Safety Violation Information

Santa Rosa, California is a city that consists of eight nursing homes within the city limits and over a dozen more within a 20-mile radius of the center of town. It's safe to say that Santa Rosa is very accommodating to its elderly citizens, but even though there are many great nursing home facilities in the city, that still leaves plenty of opportunity for elder neglect and abuse.

Nursing home abuse has continually become a growing problem throughout the entire country. This is partly due to more and more corporations entering the skilled nursing home industry with the ultimate motive to exude as much profit as possible from each individual patient. Many nursing homes generally do care about their patients' wellbeing because, after all, it is their jobs to care. When businesses operate nursing homes as a for-profit business, it is almost inevitable that some corners will be cut which cause necessary services to be reduced or even eliminated.

The rates of injuries from nursing home patients around the country has gotten higher in recent years, and that trend does not look like it will be subsiding in the near future, even in Santa Rosa. That's why the associates at Freeman & Freeman have taken it on our own to conduct thorough research into fully understanding the nursing homes across Santa Rosa and Sonoma County. We will stop at nothing for any of our client's investigative needs, thus we are going to share the research we've conducted on Santa Rosa's nursing homes.

By utilizing our overview of nursing home ratings and safety violations, you and your loved ones can make an informed decision about where to re-locate an elderly family member if they're ready to make the transition into their first nursing home in Santa Rosa, or if your loved one is looking to re-locate themselves from a troubling experience at a nursing home.

This page will also delve into what we do, what we look for, signs of abuse and inferior care, how we can help and what to do if you suspect poor care. The information on this page will undoubtedly give you a much broader spectrum of information in terms of Santa Rosa's nursing homes, and ultimately could keep your loved ones out of abusive situations or help you navigate your options when nursing home abuse affects you and your family.

What We Do

As nursing home abuse lawyers in California, we make sure that we use state and federal regulations to protect the rights of your loved ones in the prosecution of wrongful death matters and nursing home negligence. Once we have thoroughly reviewed the circumstances involving each case, we make sure that we secure the very best outcome that is possible for your loved one in need.

We stand by our clients and their families throughout the entirety of the legal process in order to make sure that justice and rightful compensations are met.

Our lawyers have a very thorough understanding of the nursing homes across Santa Rosa, and because of this, we are capable of conducting investigations into every situation and get you and your loved one the rightful compensation that the law allows.

Some elder abuse and neglect cases are very difficult to prove, which is why it's important to hire one of our attorneys who can protect your rights and combat any denial of an abuse claim by a nursing home's insurance carrier.

What We Look For

Nursing home abuse cases can at times be very difficult to prove, and although there occasionally are obvious signs of abuse or neglect, like open wounds and bruising, the other signs of nursing home abuse are not so obvious.

A loved one living in a nursing home may abruptly stop communicating as much, or may suddenly show signs of depression without expressing exactly why they have had a change in behavior. If you feel like something doesn't seem right with your loved one who lives in a nursing, home don't hesitate to look for a cause of your uneasiness.

It's important to understand that staffing does play a major role in nursing home abuse, and that most nursing home abuse or neglect is a result of understaffing.

First and foremost, we always come to a full understanding of our clients' circumstances, then, when we feel like we have a solid grasp on all the necessary information to move forward, we will use our research of local nursing homes to begin conducting our investigation into how we can prove neglect, abuse and/or inferior care took place.

Signs of Abuse

The law defines abuse as the following:

  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Fiduciary abuse
  • Isolation or treatment that results in physical harm or mental suffering
  • The deprivation of goods or services that are necessary to avoid physical harm or mental suffering

Some of the signs of nursing home abuse include the following:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Falls
  • Malnutrition
  • Bruising or physical pain
  • Sudden depression
  • Sudden change of behavior
  • Feelings of humiliation
  • Social isolation

Signs of Inferior Care

Some of the common signs of inferior care include the following:

  • Weight loss
  • Pressure sores
  • Unexplained fractures or bruises
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Repeated hospitalization
  • Medication errors
  • Chemical and physical abuse
  • Patients wandering from the facility
  • Sudden death

What to do if you suspect poor care

It's always understandable that any kind of nursing home negligence or poor care is going to come with a significant price physically and emotionally for the elderly individual and their family. This is why it's crucial to contact us so that we can take the time to listen to everything and learn all of the circumstances of your situation so we can then organize the resources to hold the nursing home or responsible parties accountable for their actions/inactions.

It's important to understand what to look for when it comes to choosing a nursing home in Santa Rosa, and it's even more important to understand that nursing home abuse takes so many different forms.

But not matter what, if you suspect a loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse you must REPORT THE ABUSE as soon as possible and utilize an elder abuse attorney to assist your further.
