Nursing Home Abuse

By the year 2050, 20 percent of the population will be over age 65 for the first time in history. As the population ages and life expectancy increases, we must address the problems of elderly abuse and neglect.

Fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves.

Patrick Powers has dedicated his entire practice to fighting for those injured in Texas nursing homes. We handle cases against nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and long-term care facilities. Texas has the most nursing homes of any state, yet one of the worst quality rankings of any state. 

Over 70% of nursing homes in Texas have three or less stars based on the CMS 5-star rating system.

We trust these facilities to take care of our loved ones and they are failing. Too often, we see Texas nursing homes underfunded, understaffed, and poorly managed. These companies put profit over patient care and our most vulnerable are the victims.

This leads to Texas nursing home patients being neglected and sometimes abused. Residents develop painful and dangerous bedsores that can lead to life-threatening infections. They suffer from malnutrition and dehydration because they aren’t fed properly. Because nursing staff isn’t monitoring residents closely enough, potentially deadly falls occur.

Oftentimes, people are admitted to nursing homes to get better only to never make it out. Powers Taylor fights to hold these nursing homes accountable for hurting our loved ones. 

Elderly abuse in nursing homes is never okay.
