Nursing Home Negligence is on the Rise
In New York, nursing homes are obligated to provide safe and able care. Unfortunately, abuse in nursing homes is increasing nationwide. According to a Congressional report issued in 2012, 1 in 3 nursing home residents have been neglected or abused. Failing to adequately monitor residents or failing to provide a safe environment for residents of a nursing home is the basis of this type of negligence.
