Nursing home facilities have a duty to not only ensure that residents are safe from abuse but also to make sure that they are provided with the proper care. This includes things like ensuring residents receive adequate food and water, access to medication/treatment, and clean and hygienic living areas. Failure to uphold this duty constitutes neglect and can result in serious injuries for elderly residents.

How Does Nursing Home Neglect Occur?
Nursing home neglect occurs in many forms—neglect of basic needs, medical needs, personal hygiene, and even emotional needs. There are many reasons why nursing home neglect occurs, and it can be either intentional or accidental in nature.
Some of the most common causes of nursing home neglect include:
- Inadequate staffing
- Lack of staff training
- Overworked nursing home employees
- Failure to employ licensed physicians on staff
- Insufficient funding
- Failure to conduct background checks
- Failure to report prior incidents
