Nursing homes are committed to providing their residents with compassionate care and safe living conditions. These facilities have a duty to their residents, and most work very hard to ensure the best quality of care.

Allegations of abuse can result in significant negative impacts, both on the nursing home’s reputation and its financial standing.

Nursing home insurance coverage is an important part of the overall risk management system, but there is more to be done in terms of creating a unified response to allegations of abuse among nursing home populations.
