Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
We trust nursing homes to care for our loved ones that cannot care for themselves any longer. When we place a loved one into a nursing home it is with the understanding that they will be well cared for and that all their basic needs will be met on a daily basis. There are government guidelines that outline the minimum level of care our loved ones will receive while there. Some nursing homes barely meet these minimum requirements in order to maximize profits and their staff may be underpaid or not well trained.
