Nurses charged after patient suffers nursing home injuries

Most families in West Virginia want nothing more than to provide for the needs of their loved ones. Unfortunately, those who are severely disabled or elderly often require care that is beyond what the average person can provide. As a result, families make the often difficult decision to place their loved ones in nursing homes or rehabilitation facilities. Despite the promises made by these facilities that patients will receive the utmost care, many patients fall victim to nursing home injuries. For example, three workers in an out-of-state facility were charged with crimes for their alleged neglect of an injured patient.
