Rise in Nursing Abuse Cases Linked to Prevalence of For Profit Nursing Care

Over the last fifteen years, the country has seen a shift in the ownership of nursing facilities which has resulted in the near ubiquity of for profit homes over government and non-profit facilities. The impact of for profit care has been felt by the numerous patients who have had their needs and concerns ignored through the prioritization of profits. To add insult to injury, the cost of nursing care is often exorbitant and most patients require access to government assistance to be able to afford it.

It seems at times that the only way for our Lowell nursing injury lawyers to motivate for profit nursing corporations to invest the money and resources needed to deliver quality care is to hold them accountable for each of their misdeeds until it is more profitable for them to place the needs of patients above their own. If you believe that your loved one is the victim of abuse, we would like to hear from you.

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
