Nursing home negligence concerns Ohio residents and others

NewsNursing Home Neglect   June 2, 2015

Some Ohio residents find themselves in need of admission to an assisted living facility due to age and/or health conditions. Nursing home negligence has been the cause of growing concerns for some patients, as well as for the loved ones who have been instrumental in helping them find residence in a medical care facility. Legislation at the state and federal levels has been promoted in an attempt to protect nursing home residents from neglect and abuse; however, such legislation has unfortunately not led to an end in such incidents.
