Was Your Loved One the Victim of Elder Abuse in Pennsylvania?
There is a reasonable expectation that our loved ones who reside in nursing home or rehab facilities will be properly cared for. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
In fact, around 90% of US nursing homes are cited for health deficiencies every year.
What is Nursing Home Abuse?
The tragic truth is that some nursing homes prioritize profit over comfort, procedure, and safety. This can come in many forms, including inadequate or unqualified staffing, improper procedure when screening employees, insufficient staffing, and unsafe conditions. The result can be that, despite the best intentions, our elderly loved ones are sometimes exposed to serious and even life-threatening conditions that exist in some facilities.
