Nursing Home Neglect

Protecting the Elderly

As the bulk of our population grows older and older, there is an ever increasing reliance on nursing homes. We trust these nursing homes with the compassionate care of our loved ones. Sometimes, they let us down.

Over 1 million people are abused in some manner in nursing homes each and every year, and this figure keeps growing. Nursing home abuse can include physical injuries, malnutrition or dehydration, bed sores, gangrene, aspiration pneumonia, over-sedation, poor medical care, or wrong medication. Nursing home abuse also includes lack of supervision, theft, abandonment, defective equipment, sexual assault, coercion, and physical or mental abuse.
