Nursing Home Neglect Archives

2 types of nursing home abuse and neglect you should not overlook

Many people in the Cleveland area believe that they do not need to research highly ranking nursing homes as thoroughly as lower ranking facilities. However, you should not rely on ratings alone to determine if your loved one should become a resident. Nursing home abuse and neglect happen in assisted living and nursing homes all over the country. Some of the most heartbreaking cases come from the best facilities. You should not shy away from assisted living if you are no longer able to provide your elderly relative with the care they need. Due diligence is necessary to ensure you and your relative do not make a decision you might come to regret. 

Nursing homes would like to downplay many incidents of abuse

If you have to go into a nursing home tomorrow for any reason -- whether you're looking at a short stint following a hip replacement or long-term care -- your odds of being abused might be as high as 30 percent.

Nursing assistant sentenced, questions remain about victims

A former nursing assistant at an Ohio nursing home was handed an 18-month prison sentence and will be placed on the sex offender registry for 15 years -- the maximum possible sentence he could receive for groping a nurse and masturbating on her as a first-time offender.
