Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Unfortunately, elder abuse & nursing home neglect is a common problem across the country.
Even in nursing homes that are well-established and seem credible, abuse & nursing home neglect can still take place. It’s hard to imagine someone abusing an elderly person. If you suspect abuse, it’s important to contact an elder care professional. Even if there is no abuse taking place, it’s better to know for sure. This will remind the staff at the nursing home, that you will hold them accountable for how your loved one is treated.
