A nursing home may be the best option if you have loved ones that can no longer care for themselves.
It can be a very difficult and emotional decision to make, but you trust and hope that the staff provides the best care that can be offered.
Steps you can take to help identify Nursing Home Abuse
Unfortunately, there are some nursing homes that are either understaffed, or do not have staff that are properly trained to look after patients who need different levels of care.
This is why it is important to:
- Make frequent visits and stay involved as much as possible
- Know the names of the doctors and nurses who are caring for your loved ones
- Periodically call to check in on them.
Following this advice can help you to make sure that your loved ones stay safe, are properly cared for, and help you identify signs of nursing home abuse.
