Nursing Home Neglect Archives

Defending against claims of nursing home negligence

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 1.4 million Americans currently reside in nursing homes. In the coming years, as individuals of the baby boomer generation continue to age, this number is expected to increase exponentially.

Nursing home neglect lawsuit: Greed is not good, patients suffer p2

We are talking about a lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Attorney General's office. The suit accuses a multi-state nursing home chain of deliberately understaffing its care facilities in order to maximize its profits.

Nursing home neglect lawsuit: Greed is not good, patients suffer

The 10th largest nursing home chain in the U.S. is under fire in a federal lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Attorney General's office.

It's official: It's flu season in New York state

The headline says it all. Earlier this week, Health Commissioner Niray R. Shah, M.D., M.P.H., declared that influenza is prevalent in the state.
