People are living longer because of advances in health care and more South Carolinians are turning to nursing homes to care for elderly relatives when their loved ones need assistance with daily activities. When you place your loved one in a nursing home in Charleston, the long-term care facility has a legal responsibility to provide quality care. Most facilities provide excellent care. Unfortunately, some nursing homes are understaffed and deliver substandard care. Because nursing home residents cannot care for themselves, they are vulnerable to abuse and neglect. Residents may develop bedsores, infections, or suffer unexplained injuries.
