Those who live in a nursing home deserve to be treated with respect and given adequate care. Sadly, this does not always mirror reality and nursing home residents have suffered in many ways due to the negligence of an employee working in the facility. If you live in a nursing home and suspect that this negligence has taken place, or if your loved one is currently residing in a nursing home and you believe that they have been abused or mistreated, taking action is critical. In Pennsylvania, this remains a persistent problem and it is essential for the victims and those related to them to address wrongdoing.

Burn injuries can be immensely painful and even disfiguring. And between the immediate treatment that burns demand and the ongoing measures necessary to minimize scarring and repair the damage, there is a considerable amount of medical care required. There is also a considerable amount of pain and suffering burn victims experience.
