Nursing home neglect and abuse cases are complicated, and proving the neglect or abuse often hinges on evidence culled from depositions, which is testimony taken under oath. If your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, reach out to an experienced South Carolina nursing home abuse attorney today.

Your Depositions

The idea behind your nursing home depositions is to obtain the information that is critical to defending your claim, which is a complicated process. Three of the most important people to depose are likely to include the following:

  • The nursing home administrator – whose job it is to oversee the residential facility and its staff – which makes him or her an excellent source of information
  • The Certified Nursing Assistants on staff – who are not allowed to oversee care plans or provide treatment and who may provide a wealth of information related to the inappropriate allotment of tasks (that could make abuse or neglect more likely)
  • The Director of Nursing – who should oversee the nursing staff and who should be on the lookout for any issues that smack of neglect or abuse
