Nursing Home Abuse Resource: Books

Picture-79I 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.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
    ★★★★★
