We expect nursing homes to care for our loved ones when we no longer can. Unfortunately, the companies that operate nursing facilities sometimes value the bottom line over the well being of their residents. The result is chronic under-staffing and, all too frequently, neglect.

Nursing home abuse and neglect is a growing problem in America and right here in West Virginia. West Virginia law is designed to protect nursing home residents and ensure they get the care and treatment they deserve. Yet, all too often, nursing homes ignore the law. They put dollars before patients and cut down on staff to save money. As a result of chronic understaffing, West Virginia nursing home residents could become injured, sick, or even die.
