Firm Publishes In-Depth Report on Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

By Mark Favaloro, Personal Injury Lawyer in Hampton

It’s troubling to know that thousands of elderly men and women are spending their “golden years” in fear and pain because they’re being abused or neglected. Far too many nursing homes are not focused on taking care of their residents. Instead, they are focused on maximizing profits and bilking the Medicare and Medicaid systems. They hire unqualified and incompetent workers who physically and psychologically abuse the residents through over-medication, restraints, taunts, and other terrible acts.

If this has happened to your elderly loved one, get our firm’s free in-depth report on nursing home abuse and neglect. The information in the report may help you determine if further legal action is necessary.
