While it is difficult enough to place a family member in a nursing home, it is even more difficult to see that family member suffer under the care of an abusive, overworked, and insufficiently trained nursing home staff.  Employees in some facilities are inexperienced, overworked, or underqualified to provide the minimum standard of care to all residents.
