Around 1.5 million Americans live in nursing homes and many suffer from both physical and mental illnesses. Often times these nursing home residents need to be restrained for their own safety, as well as for the safety of the staff and other residents. Unfortunately, nursing home staffers often use restraints for their convenience and not for the best interest of the resident. When such restraints are used improperly, residents can suffer serious physical and mental injuries. The abuse of both physical and chemical restraints can lead to serious long-term consequences.

Popper, P.C., we are dedicated to helping our clients take action against nursing homes that have negligently caused injuries to their loved ones through the improper use of restraints.
