Before Deciding To Put My Mom In A South Florida Nursing Home, I Want To Know The Likelihood That She Could Become A Victim Of Elder Abuse?
Current research reports that 90% of nursing homes are staffed at such low levels, that the incidence rate for nursing home abuse in Florida is rising. While over 1.5 million elderly persons live in nursing homes, very few cases of abuse are actually reported. In fact, only one in 14 nursing home abuse incidences ever make a formal report. That being said, the evidence clearly indicates that nursing home abuse is on the rise, but since it is rarely reported, loved ones are usually the last to know.
If you are concerned that a family member or loved one may be a victim of nursing home abuse in South Florida, it is vital to contact a skilled Broward County Nursing Home Abuse Attorney.
