Nursing home brochures portray them as being part of the Staten Island or Brooklyn community and committed to families. Many of them, however, are really run by shell corporations headquartered outside New York. Quality care is not their primary concern. While individuals working there may be committed to residents’ well-being, the business itself is looking to save money at every turn.
For-Profit Nursing Homes Sometimes Cut Corners
When money takes precedence over people, abuses occur. There are many nursing home horror stories in which residents:
- Are not fed or miss meals or are fed poorly
- Are not given their proper medications
- Are allowed to fall and injure themselves
- Are allowed to wander on the grounds or even leave the premises
- Do not get their bed sores and other wounds treated, fostering serious infection
- Become dehydrated
- Are distraught or fearful
- Are robbed of money and personal property
- Are emotionally, physically or even sexually abused
