As a person grows older they often lose the ability to properly care for themselves and take care of their everyday needs. Many elderly people do not have children, family or friends who can look after them, especially if they require around the clock medical care. In many instances, a nursing home can be a safe alternative for many elderly patients. Nursing homes, however, can also be filled with many forms of abuse that can result in serious injury or even wrongful death.
Nursing homes become dangerous to a patient when the proper care and ethical standards are not met. Many nursing homes are often understaffed, poorly maintained, un-clean and staff members are not properly trained to provide adequate care to patients. When a nursing home fails to provide the proper care it puts its patients at severe risk for abuse, neglect and wrongful death.
