Cases We Handle
When you make the heart-wrenching decision to put your loved one into a nursing home or an assisted living center, you are trusting that facility to provide high-quality care. Yet in far too many cases, nursing homes fail to hold up their end of the bargain. Sadly, nursing home abuse and neglect remains a serious problem in Minnesota and throughout the United States.
According to a report from the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), at least ten percent of nursing home patients report that they have experienced some form of neglect or abuse. Though, sadly, the true figure is likely significantly higher than that. Nursing home neglect is chronically underreported. A shocking report from researchers at the Cornell Medical Center found that the vast majority of nursing home neglect victims never file an official report.
