Is Your Elderly Loved One Suffering From Abuse and Neglect In An Arizona Nursing Home?
Prime examples of patient neglect in nursing homes can range from an orderly's indifference to a resident's bedsores, inattention to a series of painful falls, and failure to maintain regular medication instructions from a doctor.
Nursing home abuse includes any physical, verbal, or financial mistreatment of a resident. Hands-on contact, abusive language, and stealing from a patient are all unethical, illegal acts that can endanger a patient's health, and put his or her life in danger.
