Nursing Home Resource Center
Thank you for visiting our Nursing Home Resource Center page. This site has been developed by our law firm in response to the abuse and neglect of nursing home residents that we have observed over many years of litigating against the nursing home industry. John E. Suthers, the Founder and Managing Partner of Suthers & Harper, was one of the pioneers of nursing home litigation. Mr. Suthers was among the first lawyers in the United States to sue a nursing home, take the case to trial, and obtain a successful jury verdict, including punitive damages, against the nursing home owners for abusing and neglecting a resident. Our goal for this site is to help you learn more about whether a loved one needs nursing home care, what to look for in selecting a nursing home, how to recognize signs of abuse or neglect, tips for obtaining quality nursing home care, the rights of residents in nursing homes, and how to determine whether you have a legal claim against a nursing home.
You may have a loved one, family member, or friend who is already in a nursing home. These formerly independent men and women are now partially or totally dependent on the nursing home administration and staff for their daily needs. Patients in nursing homes deserve the best care, but they often do not receive it. There have been multiple government hearings over the years that have highlighted the excessive number of elderly and disabled Americans who suffer from abuse and neglect in nursing homes. The attorneys at Suthers & Harper are among the most experienced attorneys in the U.S. at representing victims of nursing home abuse and neglect and their families. We are here to help you.
