Both nursing homes and so-called "long term care facilities" must provide a high level of care to their residents, according to both Federal and State laws and regulations. Residents must be allowed to maintain their dignity, and they must be cared for with respect. Too often, however, this isn't the case.
The information on this blog is intended to educate the public about nursing home conditions in South Carolina and across the United States, and the legal landscape regarding patient care in this country. I hope you will come back often. I welcome your input and suggestions. Together, we can help change things, hold wrongdoers accountable, and improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable among us. I look forward to hearing from you.
