Negligent Nursing Homes
- May 13 2016
Can a nursing home be held liable for abuse and neglect of its patients? As the population continues to age, more individuals may be placed into nursing homes, whether for rehabilitation after surgery or for long-term care. While many elder facilities are dedicated to providing a high level of care to their patients and residents, some seniors are victims of abuse, neglect or some other form of mistreatment. Because many cases of abuse and neglect go unreported, it is unclear how extensive this problem is at the nation’s elder care facilities.
