Signs of nursing home abuse to look for include:

Profits over People: The Crux of the Problem

Staff-related issues are the single biggest reason that residents of nursing homes and patients at other facilities are injured or do not get the care they need — despite the profit that these "non-care providers" accumulate annually.

In general, these jobs are low-paying, have a high turnover ratio and are often filled by members of immigrant groups who may come from cultures that have a different standard of living than our own. These jobs can also be attractive to financial or sexual predators that see an easy opportunity in these circumstances. Training of staff is also an issue. In many cases, training new employees and keeping the skills and knowledge of existing staff current is an afterthought. But the biggest problem typically is that there are not enough staff members to take care of the people who need to be taken care of.

In addition, nursing home managers are often paid bonuses based on profits. This gives them an incentive to cut costs wherever possible, a task most easily accomplished by cutting their overhead costs for labor. Many facilities have what is known as a "no-replace" policy when it comes to accounting for workers who call in sick or do not show up for work.
