Corporate Nursing Home Chains in Wisconsin

Unfortunately, in today’s world of corporate buyouts and the loss of the “mom and pop shop,” large corporations are buying up local nursing home facilities and converting them to their Corporate Business Model. All too often, that means replacing experienced staff with less-experienced staff in order to lower salaries. It is not uncommon for Wisconsin nursing assistants to earn less per hour than the typical McDonald’s employee. This practice usually translates into poor care. The most popular Wisconsin nursing home chains are the following: Beverly Enterprises, Inc./Golden Horizons, Extendicare Health Services, Inc., Five Star Quality Care, Inc., HCR Manor Care/Manor Care, Inc., and Kindred Healthcare. Our office has experience taking on all of these multi-billion dollar corporate parent companies that own and control the local, Wisconsin nursing home facilities.

Nursing homes and their parent companies usually vehemently deny instances of neglect or abuse. You and your family will need an experienced Wisconsin nursing home neglect lawyer to hold the nursing home responsible.
