Not only is care financially draining, it can also be fraught with abuse and neglect by nursing home staff. If you believe a loved one has been subject to nursing home abuse in South Jersey, call me, Joseph Monaco, South Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer, to learn what recourse your family has including whether monetary compensation is available.

The average cost of nursing home care in South Jersey is $10,646. The majority of which is paid for by Medicaid. There are over 52,000 Medicaid beds available in New Jersey for those in need. To protect loved ones, New Jersey law requires nursing homes to report safety information including such things as staffing levels. It is known that more staff means better care provided to loved ones. South Jersey nursing homes use a mix of 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 can lead to abuse or neglect.
