Nursing home neglect happens when a nursing home resident isn’t provided proper medical care. When nursing home staff is over-worked, under-staffed, and ill-equipped, it can lead to mistakes, such as rushed or poor medical care, incorrect medication dosages, and even residents being forgotten.
When your loved one is in the care of a nursing home facility, there are some important signs you should watch out for which may indicate poor medical care or neglect from the staff, including:
Resident neglect is unacceptable and dangerous—don’t let your loved one be a victim. If you suspect neglect by nursing home staff, we can help you.

The best way to help your loved one stay healthy and safe in a nursing home is to get involved in his or her life. Plan regular visits, and take the time to get to know the doctors and nurses on the staff. It’s also important that you keep records of your loved one’s medical conditions and medications, and that you alert the staff if these change.
