Causes Of Assisted Living Home Injuries
With hundreds of assisted living homes and thousands of beds for residents the Maryland assisted living home industry is incredibly profitable. With profit being the main motive many homes can enter the market and offer a substandard level of care. In an effort to control overhead many nursing home owners, or parent companies, may staff the facilities with the minimum amount of staff necessary. They may also hire workers that are not fully qualified, do not have the proper experience, education or have a criminal past. All of these scenarios can ultimately lead to your loved ones being injured. This may entitle you to benefits and compensation according to Maryland state and federal assisted living home regulations.
