Nursing Home Residents Deserve to Live in a Safe Environment
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are notorious for putting profits over patient safety. Many Southeast Georgia facilities are understaffed, their staff are underpaid, and they fail to implement proper procedures that are meant to protect the most vulnerable of our population, the elderly. It’s because of this ‘profits over people’ mentality that many elderly residents are seriously injured or die due to negligence or abuse.
Sam Dennis understands that placing a loved one in a nursing home or other long-term care facility is a difficult decision, and that families deserve the peace of mind that their family member is receiving the best care possible. When a resident is injured because of negligent care or abuse, the right people should be held responsible, and you and your family deserve just compensation.
