West Virginia Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Kelly Reed represents nursing home residents who have suffered abuse or neglect leading to:
- Injuries sustained in falls
- Medication errors
- Malnutrition and dehydration

We have also represented nursing home residents who have suffered physical or sexual abuse at the hands of their caretakers. When you or your loved one has suffered this indignity at the hands of those entrusted with his or her care, we will pursue every avenue possible to ensure that justice prevails.
Choosing the proper nursing home is the best way to avoid the neglect and abuse that lead to these kinds of injuries. When researching and evaluating nursing homes it is important to begin by looking at decisions made at the corporate level regarding education, background checks and training of staff. Make sure that you visit each home at different times of day and that you check the most recent inspection report. Do not be afraid to ask questions about programs or plans put in place to protect the well-being and safety of residents. After your loved one is in residence, visit as often as possible.
