REVIEW A CASE

When nursing home employees are placed in an impossible situation, neglect and abuse may follow.

Examples of some nursing home injuries which could result from insufficient staffing or training include:

INSUFFICIENT STAFFING, TRAINING AND SUPERVISION

Understaffing in nursing homes has been identified as an increasing problem nationwide.  There have been reports that over half of all nursing homes are understaffed.  For many facilities, profits are placed before the care given to their residents.  In an attempt to maximize profits, the corporations which run the facility may be violating federal nursing home regulations by providing insufficient staff or inadequate equipment and supplies to accommodate the needs of all residents.

>>INFORMATION: Nursing Home Federal Requirements

Staff in nursing homes are often placed in an impossible situation where they are expected to do what is beyond their abilities.  Most nursing home employees attempt to do the best job that they can, but in many circumstances the lack of staffing restricts them and results in injuries to residents.

When a nursing home places profits before the safety of their residents and an injury results, they should be held accountable for the damages caused.  Nursing home lawsuits are pursued to obtain compensation for the injuries suffered and operate as an important safeguard in our society to protect the rights of nursing home residents and make sure that proper standards are followed.
