Nursing homes are entrusted with the care of the most vulnerable - those too sick, elderly or mentally disabled to take care of themselves.
Numerous studies and statistics show that when the nursing home fails in those duties, either by intentional bad acts or by neglect, the results can be devastating.
The victim's condition could worsen or he or she could suffer greater bodily injury or even death. Many states have special laws and requirements for reporting abuse in a nursing home setting.
