Nursing Home Abuse - A New Epidemic 

Many of our elderly and disabled are being subjected to a new epidemic. It is called nursing home abuse and neglect. In 1997, there were approximately 1.6 million elderly and disabled in 16,800 nursing homes across the United States. Sadly, it¹s estimated that as many as 35,000 die prematurely every year due to abuse and neglect . Who is paying for this lack of care? You, the American taxpayer. In 1997, nursing homes received more than $27 billion dollars in government funds mostly from Medicare and Medicaid programs. In short, these facilities are being paid for care they are not providing and hundred of thousands of helpless people are suffering. The problem is so rampant that many major insurance companies have stopped insuring nursing homes because of the growing number of malpractice suits brought against the industry.

After years of providing poor care, it seems nursing homes are finally being held accountable. A flood of lawsuits have been filed across the country and grieving families are receiving compensation for pain, suffering and the untimely deaths of loved ones.
