Nursing Home Injuries
Sometimes a family must turn to a nursing home or assisted living facility to help care for an elderly or disabled family member. In these situations, we trust the nursing home to care for our family members as well as we would. In fact, the main reason we encourage our elderly relatives to enter nursing homes is because we fear that we ourselves are unable to provide adequate care and supervision.
Most nursing homes take their duty toward their residents very seriously. As with any business, however, there are nursing homes that prioritize profits over the health of their residents. When a nursing home cuts costs by providing inadequate care, the result may be nursing home neglect or abuse that results in serious injury or even premature death.
