Nursing Home Abuse: Why?

Most of the time, what we call “neglect or abuse” results from a simple lack of nursing home staff interest. Staff does not provide for residents’ basic needs including water, food, or a clean and healthy environment. This form of neglect can also lead to more serious forms of illnesses, diseases and medical conditions. Bed sores are a typical example of conditions that are relatively easy to prevent but far too common in many nursing centers. Seniors can develop bed sores at a higher frequency due to inactivity, the thinning of skin, poor circulation, and malnutrition.
