Kentucky Nursing Home Lawyers

Many Kentucky nursing homes are part of large corporations, which are headquartered in another state and operate numerous nursing homes throughout the country. The primary goal of these corporations is to increase profit, not provide the best standard of care to patients. Therefore, many Kentucky nursing homes are understaffed and their workers underpaid because these large corporations value profit ahead of the well being of your loved ones.
