The Sad Truth About Physical And Sexual Abuse In Nursing Homes
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities should treat their residents and patients with the highest respect and quality of care. When you decide to place a loved one into one of these facilities you implicitly trust their caretakers, but unfortunately, sometimes caretakers violate this trust in the worst way.
These Types Of Abuse Are Not Uncommon
Tragically, physical and sexual elder abuse in nursing homes is not an isolated problem. Standards of professional conduct and care are violated by nursing home employees every day across the United States, and Iowa is no exception.
