It is for this reason that many nursing homes abuse cases go unreported. Silberstein, Awad & Miklos suggest families pay close attention to small signs of neglect, including untreated ulcers or sores, unexplained patient falls, semi-healed or fresh bruising, or even unsupervised patient wandering.

The law firm further highlights that nursing homes need to follow several state and federal rules to maintain their license. If any of these rules are violated, SAM helps clients receive the justice they deserve.

According to experts, the most common reason for nursing home abuse is understaffing. Recent studies show that as many as 95% of nursing facilities in the country are understaffed. Nevertheless, staff members are responsible for the welfare of their patients and cannot use this reason as an excuse for abusing those under their care.
