Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse in Louisville

Putting a loved one in a nursing home is one of the most difficult decisions that a family will ever make. Many families spend a significant amount of time researching potential nursing homes, only to later learn that they were deceived by the nursing home's promises that their loved one would be treated with respect and dignity. On the contrary, many times our elderly family members die in nursing homes because of abuse or neglect by the nursing home staff members.
