choosing az nursing home | Phoenix Personal Injury Law Blog - Breyer Law Offices, P.C.
Elderly people deserve to live without fear of abuse or neglect from unscrupulous caregivers. Unfortunately, not everyone who works in a nursing home has respect for senior citizens. Some people take nursing home jobs specifically for access to vulnerable residents. They take advantage of this vulnerability by neglecting their duties, physically abusing residents, or tricking residents into giving them money, jewelry, and other valuable objects. While it will never be possible to stop nursing home abuse completely, choosing a nursing home carefully can reduce the risk of nursing home abuse and neglect.
- Ask a trusted friend or relative for a recommendation.
- If your family doctor provides medical care to nursing home residents, ask which facility offers the best care for residents.
- Search for reports or news articles about local nursing homes. Look carefully for information about nursing homes being cited for violations or cases involving abuse of past residents.
- Review health inspection reports for local nursing homes. Avoid facilities that have poor inspection records.
