Nursing home malpractice: Not only abuse or violence

Nursing homes may cause your loved one pain or injury in several ways, and many of them could be a result of negligence or neglect. Malpractice doesn't always have to involve abuse, violence or missed medications, though. It can also come from failing to help your loved one to the restroom in time or not responding to requests for more water or food.
