Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Have you or someone you know been injured from the negligence or abuse at a nursing home or assisted living facility? There is an increasing amount of abuse and neglect that occurs in nursing homes. This may be because many families are trusting nursing homes to take care of their loved ones. Residents are often vulnerable, confused, and need others to protect them. In some instances, nursing home employees lack the care and concern that is needed to protect the elderly from accidents. Often there are just too many residents in a nursing home to receive adequate care to prevent accidents. Neglect can result in bed sores, falls, malnutrition, assaults from other residents, and wrongful death.
