Many facilities operate on limited budgets making it difficult to dedicate as much time as they need to those trusted in their care. Bedsores and malnutrition are both indicators that that your loved one may be neglected. While nursing home neglect is a serious problem, it is not the only type of elder abuse that needs to be stopped.
