Califon NJ Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Litigation

When you or your loved one is admitted as a occupant to a Nursing Home there is an expectation that procedures will be appropriate and dignified. The treatment of some of the most vulnerable members of our neighborhood is so important that the New Jersey legislature enacted the Nursing Home Reform Act supplying that every nursing home occupant has the right to be treated with importance and regard, devoid of harassing and irresponsible actions.
According to the Federal Government, more than 1.5 million individuals live in nursing homes every year across the country. When companies choose to own and operate a nursing home it includes the duty to do it properly. This implies appropriate staffing, centers, training and medical protection. With the altering landscape of our population and longer life span, nursing homes are no longer places where the infirm go to die. The owners now should run centers with a specific level of know-how, staffing, training and facilities that are focused on the needs of the population it serves.
The care provided to residents at nursing homes by those employed at times result in triggering physical, mental or psychosocial damage. Nursing home malpractice is a widespread, growing form of abuse both locally and nationwide.
