The Michigan Protection & Advocacy Service, an advocacy group for disabled people, is speaking out against nursing home abuse in Michigan and fighting for tougher laws against nursing home abuse and neglect.
The group’s research into state inspection reports uncovered many examples of abuse and neglect, many of which that were not reported to the state.
The advocacy group is asking lawmakers to create tougher laws to ensure nursing homes and staff are held accountable when abuse is found. Furthermore, they are fighting for more stringent reporting of abuse and to keep problem employees from working at other nursing homes.
A nursing home abuse lawyer is also crucial in the fight to hold nursing homes responsible for abuse or neglect. We urge you to contact an nursing home abuse attorney to discuss your legal options if you or a loved one has been abused in a nursing home. This type of attorney is a specialist in the complicated issues of nursing home litigation.
