The South Carolina nursing home attorneys at Hughey Law Firm take pride in the fact that we fight for those who can no longer fend for themselves. There is nothing more unethical and disrespectful then abusing or neglecting our elder generations. In a lot of cases, abuse and neglect continue to take place in our nursing home facilities so money can be made off the occupants. By law, assisted living facilities are only allowed to retain patients they can care for. If their conditions or health changes, the facility is not allowed to keep them anymore. Unfortunately, a lot of assisted living facilities do not abide by this law and continue to profit off the elderly even if their conditions worsen. Abuse comes in many forms from physical and emotional to sexual, but regardless of the abuse that takes place our nursing home lawyers in South Carolina will fight tenaciously for what is right on behalf of your family.
