Striving to keep nursing home residents safe, healthy and happy
There are many factors to consider when choosing a nursing home. Unfortunately, one of them is to consider whether your loved one will be safe in the facility.
Since nursing home residents all too often suffer from abuse and neglect, choosing a safe, quality nursing home is all the more important. Without properly trained staff and policies designed to keep residents safe, healthy and happy, abuse and neglect of residents will continue to be a problem.

Know the warning signs of neglect and abuse
While we may think that certain annoyances are merely part of aging, some of those are actually signs of neglect.
If you or a loved one fell at a nursing home or suffers from bedsores, this should be a warning sign that something is wrong. Falls and bedsores are preventable with proper care. But due to understaffing and inadequate training, nursing home residents are allowed to suffer. Some seniors are prone to fall or have a history of falling. This often requires the nursing staff to take the proper precautions to protect our seniors.
Stop nursing home abuse and neglect before it is too late. If you suspect a problem, we will help you. Only by aggressively advocating against abuse and neglect and ensuring that we hold people responsible and accountable for their egregious behavior will we be able to protect nursing home residents.
