Inadequate Staffing and Training in Nursing Homes

Federal law requires nursing homes to "Provide sufficient staff and services to maintain the highest possible level of physical, mental and psychosocial well-being of each resident." Most nursing homes are for-profit facilities and too many cut corners in staffing to save money and increase profits. There is a clear link between the amount of hours of RN, LPN and nursing assistant care residents receive and the well-being of residents. When the staff is thin, they simply cannot attend to the substantial needs of elderly nursing home residents.

Federal law also requires nursing homes to provide nursing assistants with a minimum of 75 hours of training. When nursing homes fail to meet these standards, it is the residents who are left to suffer. Inadequate staffing and training lead to:

Our lawyers have successfully handled numerous nursing home negligence cases and know how to identify patterns of abuse and neglect in nursing home care. If we determine your loved one suffered due to inadequate staffing, we are prepared to pursue justice and compensation.
