Signs of Neglect and Abuse in Nursing Homes
Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Nearly all nursing homes in the City of Elizabeth and the greater Union County area are for-profit companies. Many of the owners of these for-profit businesses place far greater interest on increasing profits than on providing the necessary quality care to their elderly and vulnerable nursing home residents. As a direct consequence, nurse and nurse aide staffing levels at certain Elizabeth and Union County area nursing homes are often intentionally maintained at dangerously low levels. These low staffing levels create very difficult work environments which often leads to nursing home abuse and neglect.
