Former nursing home workers charged with financial abuse

Residents of nursing homes and other assisted-living facilities are vulnerable to several kinds of abuse and neglect if their care is not handled to a professional grade. Clinicians, administrators and support staff have a lot of control over people as they start to lose it. This can put any patient at risk.

Resident-on-resident mistreatment is a concern in nursing homes

Of the things that could affect an elderly person, nursing home neglect or abuse are among the worst. Elders who need to go into nursing homes often require constant monitoring and support.

We never want the people we love to lose their independence, and they don't want it either.

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.

Nursing home neglect: Fight back with a claim

Poor staffing can lead to nursing home neglect

Nursing home neglect is something that families must constantly be on the lookout for.

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."
