What is Nursing Home Malpractice?
While many nursing homes take excellent care of their elderly and disabled residents, some do not. The financial pressures of operating a nursing home or other care facility can cause its management to cut corners on staff, training, facilities and resources. This can result in physical, sexual, psychological, verbal, or financial abuse inflicted upon residents of a nursing home facility. The CDC estimates that over 10% of nursing home residents suffer from some form of abuse or mistreatment. However, many cases go unreported because the victims involved are too scared or ashamed to come forward, or they fear repercussions. This can be especially true of older residents. One government agency estimates that only 1 in 5 cases is reported.
