Nursing homes care for the most vulnerable elderly members of our society. When we place our loved ones in nursing homes, we expect the staff members to provide for their needs and protect them from harm, and families trust them to provide the necessary care and medical attention. Unfortunately, some residents of nursing homes or assisted living centers become victims of abuse, neglect or staff errors. This type of negligence forces our loved ones to live in pain and fear, when they should be enjoying peace and comfort. Regardless of the cause, nursing home negligence is tragic.
Individuals or families of individuals who’ve suffered abuse or neglect at a nursing home should consult a nursing home neglect lawyer to review their case and offer advice on the best course of action.
Nursing home injuries or death may occur for many reasons:
One of the most prevalent factors leading to nursing home neglect is understaffing. When nursing homes cut corners and fail to hire an adequate number of staff members, there are simply not enough people on hand to properly care for the residents. While those decisions might save money in their budget, they can also put residents at risk.
