Nursing Home Neglect

Americans are living longer than ever before, and the fastest growing group in the United States is the elderly. As a result, many become residents of nursing homes during their final years.

Putting a loved one in a nursing home is never an easy decision. But it often appears to be the best option based on the belief that the facility will honor its duty to provide meaningful and proper care. However, a large number of nursing homes are underfunded and understaffed. As a result, a disturbing amount of residents are abused or neglected. There are many different types of injuries caused by nursing home abuse and neglect, including:

  • Bed Sores
  • Infections/Sepsis
  • Falls
  • Financial Abuse
  • Fractures
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Failure to Medicate & Monitor
  • Improper Medication
  • Theft
