There are many good nursing facilities in Wyoming and throughout the nation. Most are staffed with skilled and dedicated workers who do their best to adhere to state regulations and high standards of care for their residents. There is also a darker side in many such environments, however, where nursing home negligence causes personal injury and family devastation.
Many Wyoming families are currently facing serious problems regarding substandard care of elderly patients in nursing homes. Some have already suffered devastating losses when loved ones succumbed to injuries suffered due to acts of abuse. Others suspect nursing home negligence but aren't sure where to turn for support to rectify their situations.
Many Wyoming residents closely followed headline news regarding Hurricane Irma. Irma hit the southeast coast of the United States not long after a similar storm raged through the southwest. During Irma, 12 patients died in an assisted living facility, and prosecutors say nursing home negligence was the cause.
