The growing reliance on quality, affordable nursing home care for elderly individuals places a great deal of pressure on the health care industry. It is their responsibility, however, to ensure that the nursing home staff is properly trained and the elderly residents are given the care and attention they deserve. Federal Regulations and industry guidelines govern the proper care that should be given to those in nursing homes. Unfortunately, when organizations cut corners, or are inattentive or negligent people get hurt.
