- Bed sores and infections from neglect
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Medication errors
- Falls from beds or wheelchairs
- Falls in showers or bathrooms
- Physical abuse or excessive restraint

Many nursing homes are short-staffed and unable to provide the state's mandated level of care. Some employ workers with inadequate training, prior professional misconduct, or even criminal records. Attorney Bob Gillespie has more than 30 years of experience in civil litigation and the investigative skills to get to the root of the abuse. He retains a forensic nurse to examine medical charts and records and other experts who can testify when the accepted standard of care was breached. For example, investigation in one case revealed that a man whose chart called for a liquid diet literally choked to death when an aide fed him a peanut butter sandwich.
