Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Most of the skilled nursing facilities operating in the City of Harrisburg and the greater Dauphin County area are owned and operated by large for-profit companies. These for-profit companies often control the funding for their nursing facilities. Unfortunately, some of theses corporate owners have more interest in increasing company profits than providing proper quality care to their nursing home residents. Some of these for-profit business owners take aggressive measures to keep the costs of running a nursing home down. These cost cuts keep profits up; but they also make incidents of abuse and neglect much more frequent.
