Every nursing facility in the United States is required to maintain specific standards of care for every resident. This includes providing a safe environment for residents and employees. Anytime nursing home administrators, management and staff members fail to maintain a safe environment, the risk of serious injuries including falls, fractures and bedsores can rise significantly.

We stand ready to serve as advocates on your behalf to discuss how you can proceed on any case of abuse, mistreatment or neglect.
