Readers in Lake County, Indiana, who have elderly parents understand how fragile they can be, and how much care and attention they may require on a daily basis. This is certainly true for those elderly individuals who are in nursing home facilities. Children understand when their parents need the assistance of professionals, and therefore put their trust in nursing home staff to care for their parents. Because of that, it can be very upsetting when a nursing home fails to provide adequate care to its residents, resulting in nursing home neglect.
Nursing home neglect can result in residents receiving serious injuries, and even causing death. Unfortunately for one resident in another state, the assisted-living center her children trusted to take care of her failed to give her appropriate medical care after she fell, which ultimately resulted in her death.
