Injuries And Neglect Of The Elderly
The need for respectful and compassionate care for the elderly is growing quickly. The growth of the nursing home industry has made it difficult to find workers who are qualified and physically and temperamentally fit for the challenge. A home that is short-staffed or where standards are poor due to inadequate pay or training is a dangerous place for residents. A host of injuries and health conditions can arise due to negligence or abuse, including:
Additionally, medication errors can lead to deteriorating health or even death. Insufficient security can cause patients with dementia to be injured while wandering or to attack and injure other residents. The health of each patient must be monitored and protected by workers with the training to do so. When nursing homes are not run properly, New Jersey law provides a remedy for injured residents and their families.
