New federal rule may better protect against nursing home abuse

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities serve an important purpose, providing elderly or less functional individuals with a flexible support system. While residents are able to assert their independence, trained health and other types of professionals are usually on call.

Negligence and causation in nursing home abuse cases

A properly run, caring nursing home can make a huge difference in an elderly loved one's life while at the same time putting that individual's loved ones at ease. Although regulations have been implemented to ensure patient safety, many Florida nursing homes still fail to properly care for their residents. Sometimes nursing home residents are harmed by neglect, such as inadequate nutrition,failure to supervise or medication errors, but other time injuries and death are caused by nursing home abuse.

Important facts about nursing home abuse and its signs

One of the most difficult decisions Floridians have to make is when to place an elderly or infirm loved one in a nursing care facility. There can be a number of reasons for this ranging from practical to financial. The care at the facility is expected to adhere to the proper standards. Unfortunately, some facilities do not care for the patients and residents properly and elder abuse, nursing home neglect and other transgressions can occur. Knowing how to recognize this and what to do is important to put a stop to it.
