Nursing Home Neglect

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be one of the most difficult decisions a family member is forced to make and, once you have made this decision, you expect that your loved one will receive adequate care and treatment to meet their needs. Unfortunately, many nursing home residents are not having their needs met and negligence and abuse is far too prevalent. 

State and federal laws and regulations have been enacted to protect the residents of nursing homes. However, blatant violations occur on a daily basis, endangering many of our loved ones.

There are many types of injuries that can result from nursing home abuse and neglect. Some of the common injuries and abuse suffered by our clients and their loved ones include the following:
