Nursing homes throughout California are thought to be a safe environment for elderly and dependent adults. A place where we can relax knowing that our loved ones will be looked after and taken care of just as we would want to be taken care of. If you suspect your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse and negligence you should immediately seek help.
WHEN A NURSING HOME OR ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY FALLS BELOW STANDARD OF CARE
Unfortunately, there are many times where a nursing home or assisted living facility fails to provide the level of service of what we would expect our loved ones to receive. When they fall below a standard of care, our loved ones are often neglected, injured and in the most extreme circumstances killed. As a result, there have been many preventable incidents resulting in serious injuries due to the negligence of these nursing homes and their staff. It is often revealed through aggressive litigation that the lack of care and failure in care is directly related to the sole interest of the nursing home to be money profits, not patient care.
