NURSING HOME ABUSE AND NEGLECT

Every day, countless Americans trust nursing homes with the well being of their loved ones. Unfortunately, sometimes, nursing homes cut corners which results in suffering and injuries to your loved one, the patient/resident. Negligence occurs when a nurse or care taker at a facility does not fulfill their duty or obligation to a resident. This could include physical neglect, such as lack of turning, improper bodily positioning, bad bathing habits and improper toileting; medical neglect, such as poor access to medical care, improper medical care, a lack of assistance in drinking/ eating and ignoring resident requests for assistance.
