Theft and Fraud in Nursing Homes
Caretakers in nursing homes have a responsibility to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their residents. Unfortunately, far too many nursing homes in Texas are implicated in theft and fraud cases. Being victimized by theft or fraud can be devastating for a nursing home resident’s emotional and financial well-being. But the attorneys of Hotze Runkle may be able to help fraud and abuse victims fight back through a personal injury lawsuit.
Examples of Theft and Fraud
There are numerous ways that a nursing home itself or individual employee of the nursing home might engage in theft or fraud. Some common examples of this include:
- Personally pocketing money paid to nursing home by residents
- Overcharging residents without explanation
- Stealing personal items of residents
- Extorting money or assets from residents
- Forging documentation
These actions are all potential instances of theft or fraud. Even if your personal circumstance is not represented above, it’s important to talk with an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer if you suspect that theft or fraud has affected your loved one at a Texas nursing home.
