Hollywood Physical Neglect
When people put children or loved ones in daycare, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes, they expect that their friends and family members will get a high standard of medical care and everyday assistance. After all, the services are not free and the money spent on them is intended to go towards helping provide a high standard of care for people and children who require assistance. Unfortunately, each year thousands of elderly people, disabled individuals, and young children are seriously injured or physically neglected in care.
