Nursing Home Neglect
Abuse and neglect in certain nursing homes is an unfortunate reality. Throughout the U.S. instances of nursing home neglect and elder abuse continue to occur, leaving our elderly loved ones with serious injuries, lasting emotional trauma and financially ruined. While not all elder care facilities or caregivers mistreat or neglect patients, those that do deserve to be brought to justice for their actions.
