logo

It is always a difficult decision for a family when a loved one is no longer able to care for themselves and must be placed in the care of trusted professionals at a nursing home. This can become a devastating decision when that trust is broken and the family has to turn to nursing home neglect attorneys to get the quality of care that they expect.

Statistics

There are real challenges to gathering accurate information about nursing home abuse and neglect because of the lack of reporting by many seniors, disabled individuals and their families.

It is estimated that about 30% of nursing homes will have problems with staff abuse towards residents. There is considerable difficulty obtaining accurate information about nursing home abuse and neglect because of the lack of reporting by many seniors, disabled individuals and their families. Neglect is even more difficult to estimate but the numbers tend to indicate about 35% of nursing homes have at least one report of neglect.

In addition the research showed that only about 20% of cases were reported and only a small percentage of these were handled by specialized nursing home neglect attorneys to attempt to correct the situation. It is impossible to know how many issues were never reported because the resident had no family to make a report or file a complaint.

Issues for Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys
