Nursing Home & Elder Abuse
More than 1.4 million people live in U.S. nursing homes, and almost 70% of those are run by for-profit entities. As the pool of older American expands, it is expected that by 2030 nearly one of every five Americans will be 65 or older and many will end up with illnesses that require the kind of care nursing homes provide.
Neglect and abuse found in for-profit nursing homes is a growing problem and a sad reality. Many nursing homes hired to care for the elderly allow their profit motive to outweigh the responsibility to provide proper care for the elderly. As a result of this mistreatment, nursing home residents suffer serious injuries and health deficiencies in the form of bed sores, ulcers, dehydration, malnutrition, falling and even dying. Unfortunately, in addition to physical abuses, often times nursing home residents suffer from emotional and sexual abuse as well as financial exploitation.
