Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
No one wants to place a loved one in a nursing home, but when you must, you expect that the nursing home staff will do their job competently and compassionately. Unfortunately, the care in many nursing homes falls far short of the mark. Careless neglect and abuse of the elderly in nursing homes happen far too often.
There are laws and regulations that have been passed to protect elders from abuse and neglect in nursing homes, but too often inspectors are far too busy to identify and correct the problems. Sometimes, you have no choice but to hire an attorney to redress the wrong.
