Nursing Home Negligence

Now more than ever, we are relying on nursing homes and assisted living facilities to care for our family members and loved ones. We would never imagine that those we cherish are abused or neglected in these facilities. Unfortunately, this outrageous treatment does occur, and many elderly residents suffer in silence.
