How is neglect defined in a nursing home abuse case?

Nursing home neglect exists when the nursing home fails to follow the ordinary requirements of it to provide essential health and safety services.  For instance, if a patient is not fed regularly, bathed or changed regularly and injuries or sores result, that is negligence.
