Since 1994, C. Richard Wilson has been active in the area of nursing home negligence and/or abuse. In researching the applicable law and investigating the facts involved in claims and cases, it became evident that a great deal of the information we have learned would be extremely helpful and useful to people investigating a nursing home for the purpose of making decisions for themselves, or loved ones, as to placement or residency. There is a tremendous amount of information available to people having to make these types of decisions, from governmental agencies to local and community non-profit groups. These are important life issues that should be addressed by informed decisions.
