Unfortunately, elder abuse is all too common. Reports from the National Center for Elder Abuse suggest that at least one in ten elders are victims of abuse or neglect in nursing homes. And those who experienced abuse—even if it was only modest—had a 300 percent higher risk of death.
If you believe your loved one may have been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you can’t sit idly by. Improper staff training or lack of supervision in a nursing home is not only heinous. It’s against the law. Any nursing home that fails to keep its patients safe must be held accountable.
