Types of Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing homes have a legal and ethical obligation to provide each resident with the care necessary for the resident to attain and maintain his or her highest level of physical, mental and psychosocial well-being, that is the highest level of function. This includes preventing injuries and accidents.
In Wisconsin alone, almost 30% of the nursing homes inspected over a 2-year period were cited with incidents of possible neglect and/or abuse.

What Is The Definition Of Nursing Home Abuse?
Nursing home neglect and abuse refers to the mistreatment, exploitation, neglect, or harm of a resident that typically results in injury, pain, suffering, or death.
Unfortunately, many residents and/or families do not report instances of abuse/neglect out of fear their situation will get worse, or because they do not want to burden their family. Furthermore, not all victims are able to communicate that abuse/neglect has been occurring. In fact, an estimated 84% of nursing home abuse cases go unreported or unrecognized.
If you or a loved one has been neglected, abused, or mistreated in a nursing home, an experienced Wisconsin personal injury attorney can help you hold the nursing home accountable and obtain financial compensation for the pain, suffering, financial loss, and medical expenses.
