Most elder abuse claims arise as a result of the abuse, negligent care received, or the lack of care received, at a nursing home by nurses and their staff, or by caretakers while one receives in-home care. This is especially difficult for all involved, including the families making the decision to help a family member by placing them in the care of a nursing home or hiring an in-home care professional. Nursing homes must follow set regulations and standards that define such care. Unfortunately, nursing homes are still a for-profit business and engage in conduct that may be considered illegal and fraudulent. This type of abusive conduct can be considered criminal. As a result of budget constraints and greed, nursing homes often take shortcuts in the nursing and medical care they provide patients. This has led to an increase of elder abuse claims for negligent and abusive care resulting in serious personal injuries to the patients, even death. The most common type of negligent care at these facilities is when a patient who is known to be a fall risk actually falls out of his/her bed. In these cases, it is likely the nursing homes and their staff did not follow the protocol that has been set forth to prevent such falls.
