Nursing homes and the corporations that run them are businesses. For a substantial fee, they agree to provide necessary care during a period of rehabilitation, or during old age.
Unfortunately, there are times when nursing homes focus on profits more than their patients. Inexperienced and overworked staff may neglect the critical needs of the resident, or may even contribute to further injury though improper and negligent care. Policies and procedures designed to protect the residents are sometimes routinely ignored. When accidents and injuries happen, the concerns of the resident or the resident’s family may be dismissed by the home simply because the resident is elderly or has other unrelated medical issues.
Nursing homes are – as they should be – regulated by State and Federal governments. These regulations play an important role in litigation against nursing homes and the corporations that profit from their operation.
