It’s incredibly difficult to entrust the care and safety of your loved ones to a nursing home. It’s even more difficult to hear that they have been mistreated.

Causes of Malnutrition in Columbia Nursing Homes
One of the primary responsibilities of nursing home staff is to ensure that residents are provided with the nutrients they need. Failure to do so is never acceptable. When malnutrition occurs, it is often because of one of the following:
- Inadequate staffing or training
- Intentional abuse (for discipline or otherwise)
- Lack of individualized care
- High nursing home turnover
