Common Causes of Reading Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Most skilled nursing homes operating in the City of Reading and the greater Berks County area are owned by large for-profit companies. These for-profit companies control the finances of their skilled nursing facility’s operations. Sadly, some of theses corporate owners are more interested in growing their profits than they are providing proper quality care to residents. Many of these corporate owners take aggressive measures to keep expenses down such as cutting their facility’s staffing and supply costs. These measures keep profits up; unfortunately, they also produce environments of poor quality health care, neglect and even abuse.
