Nursing homes were designed to provide a place for elderly folks who require assistance with day-to-day needs. They may also need frequent monitoring, access to general medical treatments and a place to live that is safe and secure. While most families in New York wish to provide this type of compassionate care by themselves, it can be difficult to provide for elderly family members while managing other family obligations and work commitments. Many families put a lot of trust in nursing home facilities to provide their family members with thorough care, but some of these establishments fail to live up to their expectations.

Nursing home understaffing issues put residents at risk

Understaffing is a prevalent problem in nursing homes across the nation. According to U.S. News & World Report, “proper and consistent staff-to-resident ratios are essential” to ensure quality of care and treatment nursing home residents receive.
