Report Elder Abuse & Neglect

Complaints Against Nursing Homes – Report Elder Abuse & Neglect

Anyone who suspects neglect, wrong-doing, abuse or fraud regarding a resident in a nursing home, may anonymously Report Elder Abuse & Neglect to Adult Protective Services.

South Carolina’s Adult Protective Services is tasked with investigating complaints and Reports Elder Abuse & Neglect against nursing homes for elder abuse, neglect or exploitation.

Remedy of Nursing Home Neglect

In certain situations adult protective services may be able to meet the needs of a nursing home resident who has been abused, neglected, or exploited.

If Adult Protective Services concludes that an allegation of mistreatment is well-founded, it will respond by offering the victim appropriate services, such as medical assistance, counseling, special transportation, assistance with money management, or placement in a different residential setting.

In South Carolina Adult Protective Services will secure and coordinate existing services (mental health etc.), arrange for living quarters, obtain financial benefits to which a vulnerable adult is entitled, and secure medical services, supplies, and legal services.

When Complaints Against Nursing Homes Warrant Legal Action

Adult Protective Services cannot turn back time to reverse an injury or untimely death.  If the victim’s family does not feel satisfied or justly compensated for the injury or indignity suffered at the hands of the nursing home after working with Adult Protective Services, the victim’s family can proceed against the nursing home for negligence.

The nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers at the Strom Law Firm, LLChave aggressively pursued justice on behalf of loved ones and their families who have suffered injury or death as a result of nursing home negligence.  Our nursing home attorneys are available for a no-cost consultation to discuss the facts of your case and possible remedies against your nursing home or patient care facility.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
