You relied on doctors, nurses and staff members to provide a safe, healthy and secure environment for your loved one in a nursing home. If they responded to your trust by mistreating or abusing your elderly relative, they should be held accountable. Tragically, many nursing home residents, particularly those in the most vulnerable conditions, are mistreated or abused, causing serious injury and even death.

Getting To The Bottom Of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse is often the result of negligence in the way a facility is managed. While a staff member commits the abuse, the chain of responsibility can go all the way to ownership. Whether a facility hires a dangerous individual by not doing a proper background check, provides insufficient training or fails to properly staff for the needs of residents, it is not enough to fire a single individual if the goal is to protect residents from harm.
