The decision to place a loved one or family member into a nursing home can be a devastating one. As painful as it is, it is often necessary, and families often try to console themselves by at least ensuring, to the extent that they can, that the home they choose is safe, clean, diligent, and will create a productive and attentive environment for their loved ones.
There are many resources on steps that you can take to ensure that the home or facility is safe. Certainly, nothing is foolproof—the best, safest companies and businesses of any kind are often negligent—but being alert and aware and doing a thorough investigation of a facility can at leasts minimize the risk of injury.
