Texas nursing home care ranks last in the U.S.

Texas has been reported to have the worst nursing homes in the United States, and Amarillo is one of the worst cities for nursing home care in Texas, News Channel 10 reported on September 16.

Families for Better Care executive director Brian Lee said the state of Texas, particularly Amarillo, needs some improvement in the field of nursing home care, as there have been many cases over the years of neglect, medication errors, and even abuse. Lee stated further that many of these problems come down to staffing shortages and a lack of trained workers.

Nursing home negligence and abuse is unacceptable; when a family entrusts the care of their loved one to a nursing home, they expect him or her to get the care and comfort they need. Should you or a loved one suffer from abuse, negligence, or malpractice in a Texas nursing home, seek the help of the experienced attorneys at Hotze Runkle by calling (877) 919-0830 today.
