Nursing Facility Abuse and Neglect

In a study conducted by Ben Nathan and Lowenstien in 2010, it was found that within a year prior to the study, over 50% of nursing facility staff admitted to engaging in phyiscal violence, mental abuse, and/or neglect of their older patients.  Two thirds of those incidents reported by nursing facility staff in the study were incidents of neglect.
