Many Nursing Home Injuries Are The Result Of Neglect Or Abuse
Nursing home abuse is a serious problem in America. If you have an elderly parent or other relative in a nursing home, you know how vulnerable they are to potential injury. When an injury occurs because of improper treatment due to dehydration, malnutrition, or physical abuse by staff or residents, the injustice is hard to bear.
Connecticut and New York have strict health care standards and fully recognize nursing home residents’ rights, but it is nevertheless heartbreaking to hear how often these standards are ignored by both staff and management.
