Making the decision to place a loved one in the care of a nursing facility is a difficult decision that many families face today. In doing so, families put their trust in these facilities to provide care and compassion to their family members as well as any required medical care. Nursing homes should be an extension of the family, providing quality, respectful care to their residents.
It is unfortunate that many of these facilities fall far short of this requirement, their residents instead suffering from neglect and abuse. Nursing home negligence ranging from bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, and poor supervision to physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse of residents has become rampant in recent years. Poor hiring practices, staff shortages, and lack of compassion are only some of the reasons for such negligence.
