Nursing Home Neglect

When we entrust the care of our loved one to a nursing home, we expect – and are often promised – that he or she will be treated with dignity and protected from harm. Yet, despite the high cost of nursing home care, it is estimated that between one and two million Americans of age 65 or older have been abused in some way.
