Nursing Home Negligence
Legal Representation in Cases of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
According to the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, “In the United States, each state as its own definition of ‘abuse’ in law. In Washington State, abuse [RCW 74.34.020(2)] is defined as:
“The willful action or inaction that inflicts injury, unreasonable confinement, intimidation, or punishment on a vulnerable adult. In instances of abuse of a vulnerable adult who is unable to express or demonstrate physical harm, pain, or mental anguish, the abuse is presumed to cause physical harm, pain, or mental anguish. Abuse includes sexual abuse, mental abuse, physical abuse, and exploitation of a vulnerable adult….”
Washington State law also defines sexual, mental, and physical abuse, abandonment, neglect, self-neglect, and financial exploitation.”
