NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE, ABUSE, AND NEGLECT
When we entrust the well-being of our loved ones to a nursing home, we expect a certain degree of safety and care. Unfortunately, that is often not the case when nursing homes value profit over people. Even facilities with the best intentions can be directed by a parent corporation to reduce staff and cut corners in hiring to increase profits. When this happens, our family members become victims of systemic abuse and neglect. Common signs of neglect include bedsores, dehydration, and soiled clothing. Fortunately, the law provides a heavy hammer for you to use to protect the safety of all nursing home residents.
