The decision to place a loved one in a nursing facility is not easy. As our loved ones get older, they may require around-the-clock medical care that we as individuals cannot adequately provide. When we commit our loved ones to a nursing home facility, we expect they will be treated with the highest level of respect and with the utmost care. We assume the nursing home will provide exceptional care. However, when we leave our loved ones in a nursing home facility, they may be neglected by the nursing home staff resulting in injury and death.

Nursing Home Negligence And Elder Abuse
Nursing home negligence is equivalent to elder abuse. Elder abuse can be physical, sexual, mental, emotional or financial. In certain cases, nursing home patients suffer cuts and bruises, dehydration, malnutrition, bedsores and broken bones as a result of the mistreatment they received at the hands of the nursing home staff.
A stint in a nursing home is not an inexpensive endeavor. Many nursing home patients and their families suffer a great financial hardship in order to place their loved one in a nursing home. Nursing home residents deserve to be treated with the utmost care and consideration. Nursing home patients are often helpless and cannot communicate to their families that they are being mistreated by the nursing home staff. Mistreatment that is ongoing is indicative of nursing home negligence and abuse.
A nursing home that neglects its residents is a nursing home that should be sued by the residents for damages.
