When they fail to do this, they can be held accountable for harm caused to the residents. If you believe that your loved one is receiving inadequate care at a nursing home due to negligence and carelessness of the nursing home staff and management, you should enlist the services of a experienced nursing home negligence attorney to bring about a claim for negligence against the liable parties.
