A: You have two potential issues: 1) medical malpractice, and 2) nursing home abuse / neglect. The latter is one you can more readily start by contacting the facility, omsbudman, or the state's complaint website. The former would require gathering medical documentation and finding a medical malpractice attorney. Most med-mal attorneys how medical experts who would review everything to determine whether a claim exists.
