When most people think about nursing homes, they often don’t consider the fact that these are for-profit organizations. These companies have a bottom-line to watch and therefore expenses that must be cut.In this video, Chicago nursing home abuse attorney Barry Doyle talks about the intricacies of nursing homes and how they operate. Since nursing homes are supposed to generate a profit, the bottom-line is a consideration.
Nursing homes have a limited amount of revenue. They are paid per day and per bed, either through private payment, insurance, Medicaid, or public aid. So, the only way to increase profit is to lower expenses. One area that is generally cut is the staffing level. This can lead to under-staffing and a myriad of problems ranging from bedsores to resident-on-resident assault.
Whenever we work on a nursing home case, we ask the nurses if they felt that they had enough help on hand to take care of their residents. The answer is often “no.”If your loved one has been injured in a nursing home, contact an experienced Chicago nursing home abuse attorney at the Law Offices of Barry G.
