Nursing home negligence occurs when an elder resident is abused or neglected in a nursing home which can result in death, accidents resulting in broken bones, malnutrition, dehydration, decubitus ulcers, and residents wandering off the nursing home premises and injuring themselves or someone else.
If the nursing home where your loved one is at fails to administer care professionally and compassionately – and they have suffered from inadequate care—you could be entitled to compensation. The nursing home industry has become a multi-billion dollar business comprised of major corporations; efficiency and making money has become more important for them than the actual residents. Nursing home residents deserve good care. We fight for their rights when they do not.
