The decision to place your loved one in a nursing home can be heart-wrenching. The number of options are overwhelming with many things to consider including cost, amenities and quality of care. However, after doing your research, you selected the one that best met the medical and day-to-day needs of your family member. So when those entrusted to care for and protect your loved one have failed in their duty it is simply devastating.
