Nursing Home Negligence in Port Charlotte or Punta Gorda? Our Law Firm Can Help
Originally platted in the 1860s, Charlotte Harbor and Port Charlotte existed at the time of the Civil War. However, the area remained largely unsettled until the 1970s. At this time, the Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda area saw a large influx of development, predominately focused on retirees and snowbirds. Unlike the Northeastern retirees that flocked to the South east Florida area, most of Punta Gorda’s retirees originate from Midwestern states, like Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
Today, Port Charlotte is the largest city in Charlotte County and has a population of more than 55,000. Port Charlotte is home to a sizable senior citizen population and has facilities that cater to Charlotte County’s seniors.
Nursing Home Abuse in Charlotte County, Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte
It is part of the natural aging process that our bodies and minds deteriorate. As we get older, many of us will need to reside in long term care facilities, such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Charlotte County is home to more than 20 A.L.F.’s and 9 nursing homes.
These facilities serve a necessary purpose for the aging population of Port Charlotte. However, if these facilities are derelict in services, staffing, care or supervision, injuries occur. These long term care facilities rake in millions per year in Medicare payments for supposed care to our elderly family members. If they fail to provide the care and supervision they are paid to provide, this may rise to the level of Port Charlotte nursing home abuse.
The overwhelming majority of elder abuse goes unreported, so recognizing abuse or neglect inside a facility is not always easy.
Will I Know Nursing Home Abuse When I See It?
Not necessarily! To make matters more complicated, a nursing home or ALF will rarely self-report instances of negligence. For these reasons, it is on the family to follow hunches, intuition and suspicions, especially if your loved one can no longer communicate. Keep things easy. If you believe your loved one suffered a preventable injury inside a Port Charlotte nursing home or assisted living, report the injury by calling the Florida nursing home abuse law firm of Senior Justice Law Firm. We always provide completely free case consultations.

Indicators of Nursing Home Negligence and Assisted Living Neglect
Accidents happen. Especially when they involve confused, frail elderly residents inside long term care facilities. However, our lawyers analyze whether the accident was preventable through good care on the part of the nursing home or ALF.
The following injuries routinely result in nursing home litigation:
- Bed sores and pressure ulcers
- Patient falls
- Medication mistakes
- Weight loss
