When most people think of nursing home neglect in Arizona, they automatically assume the victim was elderly. But this is not always the case. In many instances, the victim is someone who suffers from physical and mental disabilities, and as a result, resides in a nursing home.
These individuals are protected under the same laws, including the Adult Protective Services Act, that protect the elderly residents of nursing homes. This vulnerable group of people is at the mercy of their caregivers in the nursing home and when abuse or neglect does occur, they have the same rights under the law in the State of Arizona.
