It is an unfortunate fact that not all of our loved ones are safe in nursing homes. Some nursing homes accept residents even when they know that they will not be able to provide the level of care necessary to keep them healthy. These nursing homes are betting on the fact that most elderly people do not report improper or negligent care. Therefore, it is necessary for the relatives of nursing home residents to stay vigilant and watch for signs of nursing home neglect.
