I frequently receive requests from caregivers, families and scholars regarding how they may obtain more information of various topics relating to nursing home care. Of course, if I can assist by directing them to a particular source or website, I am happy to.
However, over the years I have realized that there really is no centralized location for information regarding some of the recurring themes in nursing home care and litigation.
Therefore, I plan on compiling a centralized nursing home resource center, where I plan on highlighting books, websites, studies and scholarly articles on commonly encountered topics related to nursing home care.
Initially, I plan on highlighting many of the resources I have found informative or those that were suggested by colleagues. Nonetheless, I look forward to suggestions from others as our assemblage of resources continually grows. Here are some books on nursing home abuse and neglect that merit a read along with links for purchasing the book at Amazon. Further, many public libraries and medical centers stock these titles as well.
