Sadly, nursing home negligence is a serious problem facing residents of these care facilities in the United States. From elderly adults to people who are unable to care for themselves, these facilities are supposed to provide the daily care and attention that these people need. Unfortunately, many of these facilities do not only fail to give their residents the care and medical attention they need, but go so far as to physical, emotionally, or financially abuse their residents. The trauma that nursing home residents may suffer as a result of nursing home negligence or abuse can be devastating.
