There are several different methods for holding a nursing home accountable when it engages in actions which endanger resident health and safety. One such method is the bringing of a civil lawsuit against the nursing home. Experienced attorneys can help victims of nursing home misconduct determine if they should pursue such a suit.
Another method is action by the government against the nursing home. Sometimes, government agencies will conduct investigations of nursing homes in relation to allegations of misconduct. Depending on what the agencies find in the investigations, disciplinary actions may be taken.
