Nursing home and other elder care facilities have duties under the law to ensure that the people who come under their care are treated appropriately, with dignity and respect. The decision to entrust a family member to the care of a nursing home or other similar facility is one of the most important decisions a family can make. Unfortunately, many nursing homes and elder care facilities do not meet the standard of care required by the law, and this can cause unnecessary suffering and hardship, and in some cases very serious harm, on their residents. This occurs when the nursing home or their staff fails to provide regular or consistent care, creating situations which make their premises unsafe, or do not provide appropriate medical treatment.
