When you do finally select the nursing home or assisted living facility that can provide the kind of round-the-clock assistance our elderly family member needs, the last thing on your mind is that your loved one may be involved in an accident or the victim of neglect or abuse. Sadly, nursing home accidents, abuse and neglect are very common occurrences, and many cases even go unreported. If a facility is understaffed, or the staff on duty is not sufficiently trained or properly screened, your loved can become a victim of a nursing home accident, abuse or neglect.
New York State law requires nursing homes to provide the highest possible level of care and services for its residents.
