Nursing homes are supposed to be safe places where residents are treated with care, dignity, and respect. But some nursing homes are designed to generate big profits—and sometimes that happens at the expense of residents’ health and well-being.
When nursing homes cut costs, it often results in insufficient staffing and employees who are undertrained and unqualified for their positions. Those cost-saving measures can ultimately result in poor quality of care for residents. Over time, residents may even be subject to abuse and neglect.
Residents who are abused or neglected have poor outcomes, and they often experience worsening of their health problems. Some may even face life-threatening complications due to malnutrition, incorrect or irregular medication dosages, delayed diagnoses, and physical violence.
