When your loved one moves into a nursing home, they should be able to trust they will receive a high level of care from a trustworthy and experienced staff. Unfortunately, many nursing home employees earn low wages for hard work and, as a result, become disgruntled and act in a neglectful or hurtful manner toward residents.
