Q: The nursing home did not give my mother medication for 2 weeks resulting in surgery, can I sue the home?

The nursing home did not give my mother her medication for 2 weeks, her medication is not given regularly or consistently. This has resulted in my mother being impacted in her bowels, multiply hospital stays and now she has to have surgery to have a colostomy bag.

If the nursing home was responsible for administering the medication and it’s failure to do so was the cause of her problem, yes you could sue them. You should discuss the matter with an attorney who handles medical malpractice and/or elder law.

When in doubt, sue them both. If you've got a nursing home issue, I suggested you call Will Eadie. That's all he does.

Q: I think my grandma might be being abused at her nursing home but she has dementia. Does that mean her testimony won't

count if we file suit against the facility?

Dementia will certainly be an issue with her testimony. But, there are other ways of getting to the bottom of nursing home abuse.
