Pittsburgh Injury Lawyers for Poor Nutrition in Nursing Homes

Pennsylvania Nursing Home Malnutrition & Poor Diet Cases

We at Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., have made nursing home neglect and abuse a priority for clients in Western Pennsylvania and nearby communities in West Virginia and Ohio. We are proud to have been a leader in helping families protect their loved ones.

It should go without saying that a loved one's dietary needs should be comfortably met when you choose a nursing home to provide care. Instances of poor nutrition or dehydration should be met with serious concern. Our Pittsburgh nursing home abuse attorneys can help you review the situation and determine where negligence may have occurred.

When a Nursing Home Resident Is Not Properly Fed

Malnutrition and dehydration can create serious complications for even the healthiest individual. Poor nutrition can lay the foundation for the onset of serious disease and illness, and make existing conditions worse. In some cases, poor care and malnutrition have even lead to the tragic and wrongful death of a loved one.

Our poor nutrition lawyers in Pittsburgh aggressively pursue incidents of nursing home neglect or abuse. Strict state and federal regulations define the proper conduct of nursing home staff and the proper care of assisted living residents.

Holding Negligent Care Facilities Responsible

Among the most important factors in providing a healthy environment for the elderly and those in assisted living facilities is a proper diet and good nutrition. Over-reliance on liquid dietary supplements or failure to provide the proper resources are all too common occurrences that can compromise the health and well-being of an individual.

Rely on Our Experience & Our Knowledge
