Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Caring for nursing home residents can be extremely stressful. Tragically, the stress of providing necessary care can cause caregivers to become impatient and lash out against those to whom they provide care.  Other times, the stress of providing proper care can cause caregivers to become indifferent or refuse to provide the care a resident needs. Nursing home staff may be especially prone to commit abuse and neglect due to lack of training, lack of staff, and lack of supplies. These poor work conditions within nursing homes create the perfect storm for abuse and neglect.
