Short answer yes.
Look at it this way. if you checked into a hotel and they had not put the little soaps or shampoos in the room, would you still have to pay the entire bill? You would complain and they might choose to refund you or credit you in some manner, but you still owe for the room, and you would choose to not stay at that hotel again.
If your mother is not receiving the basic care that she needs, then payment is at the bottom of the list of your problems, Complain! Talk to the management!
Your mother needs the care!!!
Give them a chance to make things right and have your mother live in quality environment.
If poor quality care continues, then you need to get your mother out of there.
If your mother has been in a facility for an extended time and paying for her care is now becoming a serious burden, then moving her to a less expensive situation is appropriate. But if you are searching for examples of inadequate care as a mechanism of reducing your monthly charge, dont expect it to happen.

However, you still have to pay, unless you can get a lawyer to sue for breach of contract on your mom's behalf. But at least she and the other residents will start getting appropriate care.
