Keeping your loved one safe is a serious and important responsibility of every nursing home. Sadly, the staff often does a poor job of preventing the most serious dangers, attacks by other residents.
Attacks by other residents can occur for a variety of reasons. Often, one of the residents is admitted with a history of mental problems. Usually the attacker has a long history of violence on others. Nursing homes have an obligation to prevent attacks on their residents, even from other residents. There are no excuses when the attacks occur. Simply stated, it should never happen.
