Our legal team has a passion for handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases. The mistreatment of the elderly in nursing homes is a national disgrace. There are some excellent nursing homes with compassionate caregivers. The good nursing homes and the dedicated caregivers, who do care, should be honored and thanked. Unfortunately, there are far too many bad nursing homes that are understaffed and who have corporate owners, nursing home administrators, administrators, and medical doctors who simply don't care and/or are underqualified. There are far too many cases in which nursing home residents are physically harmed by neglect or abuse, deprived of medical attention, given incorrect medications and even negligently deprived of food and water. As a consequence, the residents endure immense pain and suffering and often needless death as a result of nursing home abuse and neglect.
Our society has a duty to protect the elderly and prevent the neglect and abuse of our most vulnerable citizens. Tom Brokaw calls them "The Greatest Generation." He is right. They worked harder than any generation. They fought in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. They sacrificed so that their children could have a better life. They deserve better. It is our duty to protect them.
