|Nursing Home Neglect Attorney North Miami
Individuals who reside in nursing homes are a vulnerable population. They rely on the staff of the home to take care of their needs, provide food and shelter, and help them maintain their health as much as possible. They completely rely on their resident staff, nurses and doctors to give them gentle and complete care. Loved ones who place their family members in nursing home care want the staff to care about their family members and treat them as people. However, this is sadly not always the case. Sadly, the quality of care delivered in nursing homes in our country is considered tragically below acceptable standards.
