Nursing Home Abuse: An American Epidemic
A nursing home negligence attorney is someone you can turn to when you suspect that you, or a loved one, is experiencing abuse or neglect at a nursing home. It is unfortunate and unacceptable when nursing home abuse or neglect takes place. These homes were built with the prime objective to bring help to the elderly and others with special needs, unable to live alone, and who need care around-the-clock.
Nursing home neglect lawsuits are quickly becoming the only way to battle this horrendous situation. Look at these documented facts:
- It is estimated that over a million seniors experience neglect or abuse over the course of one year, many of which are nursing home patients. (The National Center of Elder Abuse)
- Of the over 500,000 deaths reported in nursing homes each year, only a small percentage are reviewed by Coroners. (The National Center of Elder Abuse)
- Study shows that one out of every five incidents are actually reported. (The National Elder Abuse Incident Study)
- A California study showed that 23% of the states nursing homes were responsible for 71% of the nursing home neglect lawsuits and 10% of those were responsible for over half of the cases. (California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform Study).
