Many Florida nursing homes provide great care. However some are so driven to make as much money as possible that they sacrifice care to their residents to increase profits. These nursing homes literally make a conscious decision to put profits over people. The result is nursing home abuse and or neglect. We are passionate about holding nursing homes accountable throughout all of Florida for the injuries they cause.
Florida Counties & their Nursing Homes
Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer in Florida
Of course there is nothing wrong with making a profit as long as patient care does not suffer. These nursing homes simply do not care. They have figured out that if they reduce costs they can increase profits. The largest cost to running a nursing home is the cost of paying the staff, so they pay a lower wage to their staff and reduce the number of staff members per shift. The cost savings drastically increases profits. This is good for the nursing home but very bad for the residents because the low pay ensures poor quality staff. In addition, the decrease in staff members means there are not enough staff to provide proper care. Residents that need extra assistance simply do not get it.
