Nursing Home Abuse
The elderly people of this world who cared for others all of their lives and who are now fully dependent on others need champions. I want to be their champion. I want to help those seniors who can’t help themselves.
Most nursing homes are for-profit businesses that want to maximize their profits; the less they spend on their patients, the more money they’ll make. This can result in understaffing and patients can suffer as a consequence.
You can easily imagine a home’s reluctance to self-report abuse and neglect of their residents. All too often, family and others outside the nursing home have to initiate action if they suspect their loved ones are being abused.
