Our loved ones are important to us. When we entrust their care to professionals at nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other health centers, we do so fully expecting that they will treated with care, competence and compassion.
Sadly, neglect and abuse run rampant at many care facilities due to understaffing, poor supervision and other causes. I am attorney James Bendell. From my office in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, I am able to represent individuals and families across the state who have been hurt by understaffing, lack of supervision, poor hiring practices and other deficiencies at care facilities.
