One of the most difficult decisions you made was whether to place your parent in a Washington nursing care facility. If your loved one had been failing in physical or mental health, you may have reached the point where you could no longer safely and effectively provide for his or her needs.
Entrusting your parent to a professional nursing staff seemed like to logical thing to do, so you understandably felt a sense of betrayal to notice signs of neglect in your loved one. In addition to soiled clothing, unkempt hair, and evidence that the staff had not adequately fed or bathed your loved one, you may have discovered that your loved one showed symptoms of having an infection. This gave you cause for alarm.
