States are trying to determine how best to address this issue with legislation, education and enforcement.

It is an unfortunate reality that some nursing homes do not provide the proper type of care to these older people. When there is a belief that a person was abused, became ill or died due to nursing home abuse, a lawsuit can help to receive compensation for that mistreatment.
