Nursing Home Abuse
One and a half million Americans are presently living in 17,000 registered nursing home and elder care facilities. This number is expected to rise to 5 million people within thirty years. Many nursing homes try to maximize profit by using under-trained and unqualified help. Conservative estimates state that one of three homes in America will be affected by abuse of an elder relative in a nursing home.

We are familiar with the signs of nursing home abuse, the codes of standards, nursing home requirements, State Agency rules and the various types of abuse suffered by nursing home residents.
