Nursing Home Neglect Archives

Online video shows nursing home staff taunting resident

We never want the people we love to lose their independence, and they don't want it either. Most elderly people will not admit to themselves or their families that the progress of infirmity is making it hard to take care of themselves. It is often up to their children to decide when the time has come.

Nursing home fined for failing to stop sexual abuse

It is rarely a person's dream to have all their needs met in a nursing home or an assisted living facility because they can't care for themselves. Most seniors or people facing long-term mobility or health issues would rather live on their own or with family and loved ones. However, when someone requires full-time care, they may need to live in an assisted living facility or nursing home.

Nursing home neglect: Fight back with a claim

Nursing home neglect is something that can happen right under your nose. From a loved one being neglected and not getting the nutrition or hydration they need to stay healthy to developing bedsores from not being able to move well, nursing home neglect can cause real injuries to patients.

Poor staffing can lead to nursing home neglect

Nursing home neglect is something that families must constantly be on the lookout for. The elderly may not be able to assert themselves and point out to the appropriate people that they're being treated. Therefore, it's often up to loved ones to notice when they're not being treated as they should be.

Choose the right nursing home to prevent neglect and abuse

Nursing home neglect hurts the very people who rely on others for support and care. When you put a loved one into a nursing home, the last thing you think will happen is that a nurse will become aggressive with them or their medications will be skipped because they are dubbed a "difficult patient."

Elder abuse and neglect is difficult to spot and to stop

When a loved one is in trouble or has experienced a serious problem like injury or illness, we end up with many questions. Emotions can cloud a lot of the related issues, like whose fault it is or what to do about it. This is why the law helps to mediate these issues objectively for the good of communities.

Nursing home abuse is often underreported

It is almost always difficult to help our parents and other elders when they are no longer able to do it on their own. This is why thousands of Americans rely on nursing homes and other assisted-living facilities to help with this monumental task. Although parents may no longer live in their children's home as in previous centuries, we still feel an obligation to make sure they are safe.

Video cameras are becoming popular in nursing homes

Nursing homes and other assisted-living facilities are good options for elderly residents who may not be able to handle their own care. Neglect of one's own care is difficult or impossible from which to recover. However, neglect by workers in nursing homes can be just as bad.

Nursing home dangers: Report injuries and protect your loved ones

Nursing home neglect is something no one expects to have to deal with. Unfortunately, it becomes a reality for some patients. Whether through intentional misconduct or because of oversights, many patients fall victim to poor care and may be hurt or killed as a result.
