Nursing Home Injuries

nursing home

Every day, people are making the tough decision on whether to put their parents or grandparents into a nursing home or assisted living facility. Medical emergencies and deteriorating health often force the decision making process to move faster than we would like. We should be able to assume that our loved ones will be treated with the same kind of care and attention that we would give them at home, but unfortunately that does not always happen.

Sometimes staff shortages, lack of supervision and inadequate training can lead to abuse in nursing homes and assisted living centers. Bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, falls, and bone fractures are common signs of abuse. Sadly, every year there are several death cases attributed to nursing home abuse.
