Placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living can be a heart-wrenching decision for a family. When that facility doesn’t provide needed care, or allows your loved one to suffer assaults or other attacks, there is both the injury to the resident, as well the sense of betrayal felt by the family who trusted the facility to care for their aging loved one.
Nursing home abuse and neglect can include many different kinds of injury.

Investigating these cases requires understanding the charting and medical condition of the resident, tracking nutrition and hydration, assessing the staffing levels of the facility, familiarity with national and state regulations as to the facilities, and having a strong understanding of the nature of aging and normal disease processes.
