Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Nursing homes are necessary in this day and age for the proper care of the elderly when family is unavailable to be present for the daily care taking of elderly family members.  The vast majority of nursing homes and nursing home workers perform a wonderful task and are truly some of the most compassionate caring individuals and institutions in the world.  However, inn the rare case, nursing homes can neglect their elderly patients, and in even worse cases, abuse them.

We Won’t Let Them Get Away With Abuse

Because many individuals in nursing homes are unable to communicate or speak, the unspeakable acts perpetrated by neglectful or abusive workers at nursing homes oftentimes goes unnoticed or unreported.  Clearly, having family members or someone that is able to stop in unannounced to check on the patients is the best way to stop these forms of neglect and abuse from happening, but all too often, this is not possible.
