Protecting Seniors from nursing home neglect

The prospect of nursing home care can be daunting. Whether you are considering it for yourself or for an elderly mother or father, you worry about finding a good facility where you or your parents will receive quality care. You may be studying nursing homes, which may be skilled nursing or long-term care facilities, but, like many prospective customers, you may not be certain how to evaluate the facility.

If they have nursing staff on duty all of the time, it may offer some peace of mind. You trust that a licensed nurse is an indicator of the quality of care the facility offers. Unfortunately, in New York, often a facility understaffs to save money, thereby putting your loved ones at risk. 

Attorneys experienced in this area of practice can help you determine whether a loved one may have been abused or neglected, and inform you of what your rights are under New York law -- not only for your peace of mind, but to make it safer for other vulnerable seniors. Nursing homes need to be reminded that they can't put patients at risk to increase their profits.
