Nursing homes are often owned by large corporations, who are often time forced to restrict the level of care given to patients due to budget concerns. The corporations control the nursing home’s budget. What we often see in nursing home litigation is that the corporations are instructing these nursing homes to operate on very low budgets. This then effects the level of care the nursing home residents receive. For instance, the nursing homes are often understaffed and don’t have the proper medication and/or devices needed to address the ailments of its residents. Thus without proper funding many nursing homes are train wrecks waiting to happen.
