Estimates show roughly 1-in-3 residents of nursing homes in the United States will be victims of abuse or neglect each year; however, experts tend to agree that this number may be underreported. The Ohio Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain there are numerous factors that affect an individual’s chances of suffering abuse or neglect while in a long-term care facility, and race may be one of them.
An article from ABC 13 News explains a new study has shown that residents living in predominantly African-American nursing home facilities receive worse care than residents living in facilities with few to no minorities. The study culled data from more than 11,000 nursing homes across the nation and examined factors such as profit margins, revenue and operating costs, and injury and medical error prevention rates.
Researchers concluded that predominantly African-American facilities had tighter budget constraints as well has higher rates of care deficiencies and deficiency citations.
The research tends to suggest that location and dependency on Medicaid are each contributing factors to the study’s findings.
The law firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers is aware of the devastating effects poor care at nursing home facilities can have on patients. That's why they encourage anyone who has a loved one who has been harmed while under the care of a nursing home’s staff to discuss their legal options with an attorney immediately.
