What should I do if I suspect a loved one is a victim of abuse or neglect?

            Most importantly, if you suspect someone is in immediate danger or at risk, you should contact the police and report the incident. If the risk is not as imminent, you should tell family members of the victim who can consult the victim and monitor the situation. Also, if you suspect a loved one is at risk of negligence or abuse in a nursing home, you need to remove them from their current residence and find a new home for them immediately. Lastly, if a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or negligence, you need to contact an experienced South Carolina nursing home attorney as soon as possible to advise you on your rights and remedies.
