Nursing Homes Remain Liable For Neglect And Abuse
When members of society entrust our loved ones to the staff of nursing homes, they trust that they will provide comfort, well-being and safety. The medical needs of the elderly can be substantial, so care becomes extremely important. Unfortunately, studies indicate that the incidence of neglect or abuse is high. The National Center on Elder Abuse has indicated the incidence may be as high as 10 percent, but many instances go unreported. It is important to realize that the law provides the greatest mechanism for accountability.
