Is Your Loved One A Victim Of Nursing Home Neglect?
If you’ve placed your loved one in a nursing home, then you know how hard it can be to go through this process. You probably spent hours, days, weeks and maybe even months finding the best place to take care of the person that you love. At the end of the day, all you want is to be sure that your loved one is properly cared for and safe.
Unfortunately, nursing home neglect and abuse is more common here in Louisville, than what anyone would like to admit. According to The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care, nursing home abuse is defined as deliberate inflection of injury, unreasonable confinement, intimidation or punishment, which results in physical harm, pain or mental anguish. This includes verbal, sexual, physical or mental abuse.
