Although nursing home neglect might not raise the same concern level as nursing home abuse, it is more common and could eventually lead to more serious health issues.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, you should be aware of certain factors that could signal nursing home neglect. For example, if the home appears to be severely understaffed at all times, which leaves the residents at risk of not getting the treatment they need, when they need it. A negligent nursing home may also attempt to hire unqualified workers in order to save money, or they could fail to properly train their employees; both situations can put the patients at a higher risk of injury, disease or even death.
Although nursing homes are generally profit-based enterprises, they do have laws and guidelines that they must follow that put the patient first.
