Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse
Fighting For Those Who Cannot Fight For Themselves
Nursing home neglect and abuse is a growing concern throughout the United States. Our elderly should be revered, respected and loved, but many times they find themselves in situations where they are ignored, abused or given the wrong medication. Nursing homes provide a necessary function in our society for those who are too sick to remain at home, but that function carries with it a responsibility to treat patients with the care and respect they deserve.
