Greenwich NJ Nursing Home Carelessness and Abuse Litigation

When you or your loved one is admitted as a resident to a Nursing Home there is an expectation that treatment will be appropriate and sensible. The treatment of a few of the most vulnerable individuals of our neighborhood is so important that the New Jersey legislature enacted the Nursing Home Reform Act providing that every nursing home resident can be treated with dignity and regard, free from vilifying and thoughtless habits.
According to the Federal Government, more than 1.5 million individuals live in nursing homes every year across the country. When organizations pick to own and operate a nursing home it comes with the duty to do it properly.
Sadly, the care offered to individuals at nursing homes by those utilized at times result in causing bodily, psychological or psychosocial damage. Sometimes the damage is brought on by intentional acts, and in some cases the harm is the result of negligence. Nursing home malpractice is a extensive, growing type of abuse both locally and nationwide. There is also reason to think these circumstances of overlook and abuse are under-reported.
