Maryland Nursing Home Attorneys
Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers in Annapolis, Upper Marlboro & Washington D.C.
People don't give up their rights when they enter a nursing home; they acquire new ones. According to the federal Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987, all nursing home residents are entitled to receive quality care and live in an environment that improves or maintains the quality of their physical and mental health.
Despite state and federal regulations, however, nursing home negligence or abuse result in accidents that injure thousands of vulnerable residents in nursing homes, assisted living centers and other residences for the elderly every year.
