Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Many of the nursing homes operating in the City of Lancaster and the greater Lancaster County area are owned and operated by large for-profit companies. These for-profit companies typically control the finances of their skilled nursing facilities. Unfortunately, some of theses corporate owners have a greater interest in increasing their profits than providing quality care to vulnerable nursing home residents. Some of these corporate owners take aggressive measures to keep nursing home costs down such as cutting facility staffing and supply expenses. These cuts keep profits up; but they also make neglect and abuse much more likely.
