Nursing Home Law - Nursing home neglect and abuse is a national disgrace. In fact, this is a widespread and increasing crisis in the United States. An investigation by Time magazine revealed that seniors in nursing homes are at a far greater risk of death from neglect than their loved ones imagine.
An analysis of the death certificates of persons who died in California nursing homes between 1986 and 1993 revealed that over 7%, or 1 in 15, of the deaths of seniors in nursing homes, resulted at least in part, to utter neglect, lack of food or water, untreated bedsores, or other generally preventable ailments. Since that study, this nation's nursing home population has risen sharply. If the 1.6 million Americans now in nursing homes are dying of questionable causes at the same rate, then every year about 35,000 elderly citizens die prematurely or in unnecessary pain, or both.
