Among the duties of a nursing home to protect their residents from harm is the requirement that it properly screen all employees for prior criminal conduct or other past behavior that may endanger the safety of nursing home residents. Nursing homes also have a duty to monitor their residents so they cannot cause physical harm to other residents, including, but not limited to, sexual and physical abuse. Failure to provide these basic services is a form of nursing home neglect and abuse that can never be tolerated.

When nursing homes place profits above the adequate safety of their residents who may be physically or sexually injured because of inadequate supervision of other residents, employees or others on the premises, lack of staffing or failure to properly screen employees, there are unnecessary increased risks of harm to residents who deserve to live in a safe and secure environment.
