Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home neglect is not always intentional. There are many reasons why it happens, and the staff may all seem, and actually be, very nice and caring. But, nursing home neglect is never acceptable and it can quickly lead to an untimely death.
Nursing home neglect can also be misunderstood. It may feel unreasonable and like it is asking too much, to you as a capable an independent adult, to expect someone to wait on your loved one “hand and foot” and provide constant 24-hour supervision as you would to an infant. The truth is, that is what many nursing home residents need and why nursing homes exist. For nursing home residents, that level of attention is not a luxury; it is necessary for their survival.
