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. Nursing home abuse has become a serious problem in the United States, as almost six million cases were reported in 2010 alone. No elderly or disabled person should have to suffer abuse, however many feel helpless and do not know how to remedy the situation. Therefore, loved ones should always be aware of the signs that may indicate their loved one has been abused in a nursing home. If you suspect your loved one has suffered abuse, you should always contact an experienced personal injury attorney in Philadelphia for help as soon as possible.
