Reporting Nursing Home Negligence

Deciding to put your loved ones in a nursing home can be a difficult decision; learning that they have become victims of nursing home negligence is just horrifying.

If you believe that your loved one has suffered at the hands of staff members at their nursing home, the first step is to report the abuse. No matter how minor you think it may be, even if it only amounts to neglect or maltreatment, you need to contact the nursing home officials immediately. It is often family and friends that are the first to notice nursing home abuse, not the actual staff members working there.

Should your concerns not be addressed by the proper authorities at the nursing home, you need to remove your loved one immediately. At that point, you can then contact a regulatory agency to discuss the matter further. You may not only be protecting your loved one, but someone else's loved one as well by reporting the suspected abuse.
