Nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other long-term care facilities must adhere to the minimum standards governing the nursing home industry. These standards are regulated by federal and state laws. Nursing homes that fail to adhere to the minimum standards can loose their license.

When a nursing home fails to adhere to the minimum industry standards, the residents can suffer catastrophic injuries. A victim of a catastrophic nursing home injury caused by negligence of the nursing home or failure of the nursing home to adhere to the industry standards can pursue a nursing home negligence claim.
