As family members grow older, many face the issue of where older family members who can no longer care for themselves should live. Nursing homes are an often sought-after solution.
Unfortunately, evidence indicates that nursing home abuse and negligence are on the rise. Both young and old can fall victim to negligent care and abuse in nursing care facilities. Many elderly patients are injured and die as a result of caregivers who:
- Fail to provide them with necessary food and liquids
- Don't turn them in their beds to prevent life-threatening bedsores
- Leave them unattended, resulting in falls
- Provide incorrect medicines or dosages
