Nursing Home Illness

The purpose of a nursing home is to provide health care for our loved ones when we are unable to do so alone. A good nursing home will provide residents with consistent quality care. Sadly, not all nursing homes do their duty and work hard to keep their patients healthy.

If your loved one has contracted an illness due to nursing home negligence, compensation may be available for the emotional and financial toll of their irresponsibility.
