Those in Pennsylvania who must decide whether to place their loved one in a nursing home often agonize over the decision. Once made, they still have to worry about whether their loved one's needs are being met and that protections from nursing home abuse are provided. In the past, some victims of such abuse may have been denied the opportunity to seek justice in a civil court. Recent changes in federal regulations may help these victims and their families seek justice.
