Millions of elderly and disabled Americans receive care in nursing homes across the United States. Unfortunately, there have been serious reports about nursing homes that have violated health and safety rules, neglected patients or otherwise failed to render adequate service. The law requires that nursing homes abide by various standards, including ensuring appropriate staffing, honoring patient rights, and other rules aimed at making patient’s quality of life a priority. Violation of the rules and standards can result not only in serious penalties but also in lawsuits from nursing home residents. If your loved one has suffered an injury while a resident of a nursing home, consider speaking to an attorney about your legal rights. If the nursing home is found to be negligent in providing care or even abusive, you could be entitled to monetary damages and the nursing home could even lose its certification.
