When your loved one is residing in an assisted living facility, they should never have to suffer nursing home abuse. However, when abuse does take place, those responsible must be held accountable for their actions. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has made these cases more complicated than ever before.
Nursing homes have been hit hard by the pandemic, with many facilities experiencing severe staffing shortages due to staff becoming infected or needing to quarantine. These shortages have made it difficult for nursing homes to provide the necessary care for their residents, leading to an increased risk of abuse and neglect.
Adding to the complexity of these cases, many states have laws that shield nursing homes from liability for COVID-related issues, including abuse and neglect. These laws make it more difficult for families to hold nursing homes accountable for any harm caused to their loved ones during the pandemic.
