Nursing Home Abuse
Nothing is worse then Nursing Home Abuse no matter if you live in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, or West Palm Beach or anywhere else in the State of Florida. A congressional report has found that more than thirty percent (approximately 5,283) of the nursing homes in the U.S. were cited for an abuse violations causing harm between January 1999 and January 2001. Over 2,500 of the violations were serious enough to cause actual harm or to place residents in immediate jeopardy of death or serious injury.
American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging found that the number of abuses are actually on the rise. Of those abuses the ones most common where verbal, sexual and physical. There is no greater injustice then the abuse of the elderly by a home that you put your full faith and trust in to care for a family member or dear friend.
