No family wants to face having to put a loved one into a nursing home. However, if it is necessary to take this step, the family deserves to know that the promises of the nursing home to take care of their parent(s) are true.
A Decrease in Quality Care from Nursing Homes
Despite promises by nursing homes to care proper care of its residents, family members might notice indications of a deterioration in care. The nursing home might not be answering a call light quickly enough. The nursing home staff might not be keeping a resident clean, or they might be letting a resident stay in the same position in bed for too long, resulting in skin ulcers.
What can seem at the time like minor lapses of care can be indications of something far more serious. There could be an issue with under-staffing, or the nursing home management might not have properly trained the nurses and staff to plan and care for each resident professionally and adequately. Few people are as helpless as those confined to live in a nursing home.
