Dedicated To Helping Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse
In 2007, more than 90 percent of nursing homes were cited for federal health and safety violations, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Statistics for actual instances of abuse are harder to come by, for several reasons. Victims often fear that if they tell anyone, even a loved one, the situation will get even worse. Or, in some cases, the victims are unable to make a complaint. Not surprisingly, nursing homes are reluctant to reveal their records. In addition, symptoms of abuse may not be easy to detect unless you know what you’re looking for.
