New Jersey law requires nursing homes to report safety information including such things as staffing levels to the proper authorities. However, safety issues are still all too common when safety plays a back seat to profits. Salem County nursing homes offer various personnel to care for residents: clerks, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, housekeeping staff, certified nurse assistants, physicians and administrators. A lack of safety concerns in any one of these disciplines including under-staffing can lead to abuse or neglect.
