Physical & Sexual Abuse in Nursing Homes

Every year, hundreds of innocent, vulnerable residents of nursing homes in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania become victims of physical and sexual abuse by staff and residents. The simple fact is that nursing home abuse is completely preventable if management is diligent in its supervision and the staff provides levels of services according to the resident’s care plan. Any deviation from the care plan can mean that the staff isn’t prepared to show respect for the dignity of the resident, often leading to nursing home abuse and neglect. If your loved has suffered an injury due to negligence of a nursing home it is important to contact a New Jersey elder abuse lawyer as soon as possible.
