Nursing Home Bowel Obstruction Attorneys in Pittsburgh

Has Your Loved One Suffered Nursing Home Neglect in Pennsylvania?

Patients in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are often unable to move without assistance, even to use the bathroom. While some elderly adults or people with certain medical conditions may be more prone to constipation than others, when a nursing home patient suffers from a bowel obstruction or fecal impaction, negligence on the part of the nursing home is often a contributing factor.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, our attorneys have significant experience representing clients in cases involving nursing home neglect throughout western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio. We understand how to evaluate and investigate these difficult cases, and we are passionate about obtaining the compensation and justice our clients deserve.

If you are concerned about the care of your loved one in a nursing home or other personal care home facility, please call or contact our lawyers online for a free consultation.

Why Do Bowl Obstructions Happen in Nursing Homes?

Symptoms of a partial or complete bowel obstruction may include abdominal pain, vomiting and bloating. If a bowel obstruction is left untreated, serious complications can occur and death may occur.

Understaffing in nursing homes is a serious issue that is not uncommon. With too few staff members available to make certain that each resident is getting the proper care, including bathroom assistance, proper diet, enemas and other treatment, patients can fall victim to neglect. Additionally, failure to review the medical history of patients and other quality control issues can lead to negligence and dangerous conditions in nursing homes.
