Good Samaritan Society - Eugene Village Nursing Center
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision, or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision; as mentioned in the citation below.

The investigation did not include witness statements, what caused the fall, and whether the Care Plan interventions were followed.”
