Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Nearly all nursing homes in the City of Edison and the greater Middlesex County area are owned by for-profit companies. Many of the owners of these for-profit businesses place much more emphasis on increasing profits than on providing proper standards of care to the elderly nursing home residents they serve. As a direct consequence of this profit driven mindset, nurse staffing levels at some Edison and Middlesex County area nursing homes are intentionally kept at low levels. These low staffing levels create difficult and unpleasant workplace environments which very often leads to nursing home abuse and neglect.
