It is estimated that more than 91% of the nursing homes in the United States have insufficient nurse aid staffing levels to provide the necessary care to nursing home residents. In addition, more than 40% of all nursing homes would have to increase nurse aid staff by 50% or more to reach the minimum threshold necessary to meet the residents’ needs.
If you have a loved one who is staying in a nursing home, you expect him or her to be receiving the most professional, compassionate care possible. In some instances, this does not always occur. Nursing home abuse may take the form of assault or battery, sexual abuse, rape, unnecessary physical restraint, insufficient food or water or the improper use of medication. Residents who are neglected may suffer lack of hygiene, lack of medical attention, bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, emotional isolation, and “slip and fall” accidents. Nursing home abuse is an issue we cannot ignore.
