Our mission is to fight relentlessly for our clients' rights.
Understaffing Of Nursing Homes — It's Corporate Policy
Most nursing homes are part of large chains of homes run by giant corporations headquartered states away. When South Carolina nursing homes are understaffed and their workers underpaid, this is largely the result of corporate-level decision making — boardroom decisions made to cut costs and put profit ahead of the well being of your loved ones.
