Knowing What To Do When Loved Ones Are Injured In Nursing Homes

When we place a loved one in a nursing home facility, we do so with the understanding that they will be safe and well-cared for. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The Bill of Rights for New Jersey Nursing Home Residents was enacted in 1976 to protect nursing home patients from neglect and abuse. It establishes responsibilities for nursing homes and delineates the rights of nursing home residents. Still, elder abuse in care facilities is far too common.
