Maryland Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
It is hard enough placing a beloved parent or grandparent in a nursing home, without having to worry about elder abuse and staff negligence as well. Licensed nursing homes in the District of Columbia and Maryland are required to screen and train their staff for the highest level of care and diligence. Nursing home residents are to be afforded the respect and dignity of a safe environment and high standards of care. Unfortunately, nursing homes are often understaffed, failing to supervise residents who act out physically or staff members who do not adequately care for patients.
