Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect: Know Your Rights

Nursing home and assisted living facilities are responsible for taking care of your loved ones. These facilities are required to follow state and federal guidelines. This includes ensuring nursing home staff are properly trained, and residents are given the care and attention they deserve. When organizations fail to meet these standards, the elderly are harmed and may suffer severe or fatal injuries.
