Nursing homes routinely provide residents with their “Bill of Patient Rights.” Below is the website for Resident Rights listed by the National Long-Term Care Ombudsman Resource Center: However, there is one right that nursing home residents need to add to that list – you have the right to contact a lawyer at Goddard & Wagoner PLLC, (304) 451-3500 to find out if your rights are being violated. We help families of nursing home patients in many types of suits – falls, bed sores (also called pressure sores, pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers), dehydration, malnutrition, infections, and wrongful death. We represent injured parties in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Call us today if you or a loved one has suffered injury due to a nursing home’s negligence or abuse.
