As our age expectancies increase, more adults find that they do not have the ability to care for their aging parents and need to place them in nursing homes or long-term care facilities. Unfortunately, understaffing and/or undertrained staff at these care facilities can lead to nursing home abuse, neglect, and medical malpractice, putting the health and lives of loved ones at risk.

Below are numerous legal resources provided by South Carolina personal injury attorney Andy Arnold to help prevent and stop nursing home abuse.
