Nursing home medication errors could be fatal

Any time a loved one enters the care of a nursing home, the process can be a little frightening and it can be hard to know whether one is making the right decision or not. The truth is that it can be very hard to determine at first glance whether a nursing home or other assisted living facility is providing good care in the long term and whether a loved one will be safe there. Health inspectors and other government watchdogs are supposed to be there to protect patients in nursing homes from harm, but all too often we see cases in the news where not enough has been done to prevent injuries or deaths.

What you can do to protect loved ones from nursing home abuse?

The way North Carolina nursing home residents are treated has a significant impact on the quality of their lives. The selection of a long-term care facility often is a family decision based on several factors. The living environment, available medical services, caregivers' attitudes and costs are considered.

Relatives dealing with North Carolina nursing home neglect

Adult children cannot stay with parents in North Carolina long-term care facilities 24 hours a day. That doesn't mean concerns disappear when visiting times end. It's natural to be worried about the care a loved one receives, particularly when a parent's awareness or communication skills are limited.

Nursing home neglect: Worse than you think

You have every reason to be concerned about the care a loved one receives in a North Carolina health care facility. Although many medical professionals are highly trained and deeply dedicated to their work, no one is more concerned about your relative's well-being than you and your family.
