Nursing Home Negligence

The Name To Trust Throughout Florida

A recent study estimated that at least 2.3 million seniors would become a victim of nursing home abuse. Almost all of the cases go unreported. Sometimes the victims are too afraid to come forward or sometimes the family members are often unaware. A report from the American Association of Justice stated that only 1 in 14 nursing home abuse cases are reported to the proper authorities. Furthermore, it is estimated that 90% of nursing homes are understaffed.

It’s deplorable that the nursing home negligence and financial exploitation of elderly individuals is on the rise.

The data by the Florida Department of Children and Families suggests that there’s a deplorable 74 percent increase in the case of verified abuse or neglect of the elderly since 2011. In 2015 alone, there were 2,525 cases of verified abuse or neglect in the sunshine state.
