Standing up for Victims of Nursing Home Abuse
When your loved one is placed in a nursing home, it is a challenging and emotional experience for everyone involved. When we place a loved one in a nursing home, we expect they will be treated well and provided proper care from the nursing home staff.
However, it is becoming more common for nursing homes to fail to appropriately treat their patients. Many nursing homes are overcrowded and understaffed resulting in neglect, or their employees may simply be under-trained or even abuse their patients. When a person is neglected or abused by nursing home staff, loved ones may be subjected to the following:
- Bedsores & open wounds
- Malnutrition & dehydration
- Errors in medication
