Roughly, one million nursing home residents are abused every year in the United States. The abuse stems from recurrent neglect such as falls and fractures, bed sores, physical abuse or unexplained injury, septic shock, lack of supervision, weight loss or gain, improper medication, unsanitary conditions, substandard care and unexpected or wrongful death. Nursing home residents deserve and should receive an acceptable quality of care. After all, that is what a family expects when they place their loved one in nursing home facilities.
