The Dangers Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
When we place a family member in a nursing home or another long-term care facility, we trust that the staff will attend to his or her needs. We trust that the administration has policies in place to provide care, support and sustenance for residents who are no longer able to care for themselves.
When nursing home staff members and administrators fail to meet their obligations, it is a stunning betrayal of trust. The consequences for the victims are harsh and lasting. This is why it is so important to place loved ones in safety as soon as abuse or neglect is detected. This is also why it is important to take legal action to hold all responsible parties accountable.
