Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
A significant number of the nursing homes operating in the City of Hackensack, NJ and the greater Bergen County area are owned by for-profit corporations. These for-profit corporations usually have complete control over the finances of the nursing facilities. The corporation commonly controls all staffing and supply levels. Unfortunately, some of the corporations are more interested in growing profits than providing proper standards of care to residents. Many corporations owning nursing homes aggressively reduce staffing and supplies which greatly impacts the quality of care provided at the nursing home.
