Florida is ranked 4th highest in nursing facility residents in the country. Many are poorly staffed and undertrained leading to neglect of the most vulnerable in our population. Frequent issues at nursing homes are falls, pressure sores, malnutrition and dehydration. These preventable issues frequently lead to the patient’s untimely death.
Florida law requires a pre-suit period before filing a lawsuit against a nursing home or assisted living facility (ALF). Jennifer Lipinski and her team will review medical records and obtain experts to determine if the facility deviated from the standard of care and caused harm to the patient.

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) takes calls 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. You can file a complaint here.
You also should attempt to document the abuse. Take pictures of any sores. Complaint to the nursing home administrator and/or leadership within the facility. Documenting your complaints in emails, text messages, and other written communications are helpful. Obtain copies of any incident reports as oftentimes the nursing home will not willingly turn it over later.
