Nursing home personnel have a duty of care that many people might call a sacred duty. They are charged with protecting the welfare of vulnerable people who are in long-term care facilities because they are unable to care for themselves. Whether nursing home residents are there primarily because they are elderly or because they are disabled, family members rightfully expect nurses and attendants to follow accepted standards of care.

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect
Has your family member suffered an injury or harm such as the following while a resident of a long-term care facility?
- Signs of sexual abuse
- Broken bones resulting from a fall or falls from bed or from a chair
Sometimes family members say they are "not after money" when they encounter signs of nursing home neglect, but rather, they want to see future similar problems prevented. A provision of a settlement in a nursing home neglect case may include a requirement that the nursing home correct underlying causes of an incident, such as understaffing or a lack of proper training of caregivers.
