Nursing homes are supposed to provide good care for the elderly residents,
but some nursing homes cause pain and suffering to the residents. A nursing
home may be insufficiently staffed and the employees not trained properly.
The nursing home may be a very painful experience for the resident. Elderly
residents rely on the staff of the nursing home for basic necessities
including water, food, medicine, and grooming. If a nursing home fails
to provide treatment and care, it may be negligent not helping to preserve
a resident’s health and safety. Some examples of nursing home negligence
include failures to provide food or water, failure to provide safe living
conditions, failure to provide treatment and medicine, failure to provide
supervision to prevent accidents, and failure to prevent bedsores. If
