Nursing Home and Elder Abuse
Protecting the Elderly in Long Island
Those who are unable to care for themselves are often placed in assisted living homes where they will be taken care of by nurses and caregivers. Many of these facilities are greatly qualified to care for these elderly individuals due to their adequate staffing. However there are many facilities that are greatly understaffed and as a result the nurses who take care of these elderly individuals may use violence to achieve their desires with their patients.
There are many elderly individuals who are the victims of abuse, neglect, and physical and verbal violence. This is a very sad situation because the victims of this abuse are unable to care for themselves and are reliant upon their nurses for care.
