Examples of Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home neglect is any refusal or failure to provide adequate care. Neglect may also extend to financial duties if a person has been given the responsibility to pay for bills or other financial obligations. In cases of nursing home neglect, this usually manifests as the nurses or staff not providing basic and expected life necessities to residents, such as water, food, personal hygiene, medications, comfort, and clothing.
