Advocacy For Nursing Home Residents
Nursing Home Rights Enforcement Project (NHREP)
Nursing home residents can be at risk for mistreatment.
95% of nursing home residents have been neglected or have witnessed neglect.
1 in 3 nursing home staff admitted to emotionally abusing residents.
1 in 5 ER visits among nursing home residents was attributed to abuse or neglect.
An increasing number of people require skilled care each year. As facilities fill up, abuse and neglect can increase. Staff are responsible for ensuring the well-being of residents, and long-term negligence can cause serious health issues.
While there are many caring staff members and quality facilities, there are also facilities where mistreatment goes under the radar, risking residents’ well-being.
We advocate for quality care.
We protect the rights of seniors who have been neglected or abused in skilled care facilities.
Our goal is to give a voice to vulnerable seniors and motivate nursing homes to provide adequate care for their residents. Our experienced elder law attorneys approach each case empathetically, with the goal of keeping seniors safe.
