Protecting Loved Ones from Nursing Home Abuse
Solomon & Relihan’s Phoenix based law firm has recently launched NursingHomeAdvocates.com. NursingHomeAdvocates.com is a resource portal designed to assist both family members of nursing home residents, and the patients themselves, who suspect neglect, malpractice, or abuse.
In the United States alone, nursing home malpractice has become a significant problem with growing numbers. Investigations done by the US Government have shown that approximately 30% of nursing home facilities in the US have neglected or abused their patients, resulting in significant harm. Studies also show that nursing home malpractice has resulted in over 4,000 deaths due to malnutrition, dehydration, and bedsores.
