Why It Happens

Nursing home residents are among society’s most vulnerable individuals. Unfortunately, this makes them easy targets for various types of mistreatment by staff.

Federal Guidelines

Recent studies have concluded that many nursing homes throughout the United States are failing to meeting Federal Staffing Guidelines and the government is not penalizing the offenders.

How We Can Help

The legal team at Henson Fuerst has a long history of advocating for the rights of people suffering from mistreatment in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Contact us today.
