Neglect / The Steele Law FirmThe sad truth about nursing homes is that they often fail to provide the very thing that families expect. Nursing homes are supposed to provide the specialized care that families cannot. In fact, nursing homes often promise to provide the specialized care a love one requires. Unfortunately, the promise of proper care often turns into neglect for many nursing home residents. This is inexcusable and the nursing home should not go unpunished.

Neglect in a nursing home is defined as any failure by staff to meet the essential needs of a resident. Failure to possess the proper facilities or enough staff to care for a resident does not excuse it. In fact, neglect can be both intentional and unintentional. Intentional neglect occurs when staff purposefully fails to fulfill a resident’s needs. Unintentional neglect occurs when staff forget or fail to recognize the essential needs of a resident. Neither type of is ever excusable.
