One of the most common causes of abuse and neglect in nursing homes is improper training of nursing home workers. Lack of training can lead to residents developing bed sores, being malnourished, and receiving improper medication. The attorneys at Solomon & Relihan have represented many victims of nursing home abuse and know how to spot abuse and neglect caused by improper training of workers.
Lack of training can be due to many factors including negligence from the nursing home facility in which they work. Even if they are properly trained, volunteers should in no way put residents in a position to be abused or neglected. Unfortunately negligence from volunteer workers does occur. Most volunteer workers are not licensed professionals and therefore it is possible for residents to be put at risk of negligence or abuse from untrained or improperly trained nursing home or assisted living center workers. read more
