Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
When we send our parents, grandparents or other loved ones to a nursing care facility, we have a right to expect that they will be treated with kindness and cared for with respect. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence and abuse is far more frequent than we would like to believe.
The results of nursing home neglect and abuse are serious and include:
- Bed sores
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
Why Do Injuries Occur
Bed sores and slip-and-fall injuries are two of the most common types of nursing home injuries. These and other common injuries are typically the result of caretaker neglect. In some cases, the nursing home simply fails to employ enough workers to adequately monitor and care for their patients. In other cases, the nursing home fails to adequately screen and monitor their employees to ensure quality patient care.
