What can I do if my mom or dad was mistreated in a New York Nursing Home?


One of the most difficult decisions family care providers have to make is whether to put their mother or father in a nursing home. When a parent requires a greater level of care than a child can provide in a home setting, especially when the child is working and cannot be there 24/7, the decision arises as to whether to place a loved one in a skilled nursing facility, or nursing home. Such decision is often accompanied by a significant amount of guilt, even when the parent requires a higher level of care, and often around-the-clock monitoring, care and supervision, which is more than a layperson can provide.


When choosing a nursing home In New York for your mother or father, the nursing home is required by federal and state law to perform an assessment to determine the level of care your family member requires. The nursing home must then certify to the federal and state government, in most situations, that they are equipped to provide the required care to your family member, in order for the facility to be paid for its services.


The reality, from our experience, however, is that nursing homes in New York seek to fill all of their available patient beds in order to obtain the maximum compensation and resultant profits. Nursing homes in New York average revenue in the tens of millions of dollars, with some larger homes making hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue per year.


The largest cost (or expense) for these nursing homes in every case is labor, the salaries they must pay for registered nurses, licensed nurses, CNAs (certified nursing assistants), physical therapists, occupation therapists, physicians, consultants, etc. In many nursing homes, we have seen that the for-profit owners maximize their profits and revenues by cutting the greatest costs, the staff. What happens when the nursing staff is cut? This very often leads to inadequate and often negligent care, including an overall lack of supervision, and a failure to provide a necessary level of care, such as failure to properly turn and position, bathe, toilet, change, feed, provide hygiene, ambulate, prevent bed sores, prevent deterioration, amongst many other things.


 Some of the signs, symptoms, and injuries that appear as a result of nursing home failure to care are:

  • Bed Sores or Pressure Sores (also known as “decubitus ulcers” or “pressure ulcers”)

  • Falls resulting in fractures or other serious injury

  • Infection or Sepsis

  • Head injuries

  • Injuries of unknown origin

  • Malnutrition or Dehydration

  • Medication Errors

  • Choking

  • Clogged Breathing Tubes

  • Physical or Sexual Assault or Abuse

  • Physical or Chemical Restraints

  • Burns

  • Alzheimer's and other dementias

  • Assaults by staff
