Cathedral Rock Nursing Home Guilty of Horrendous Nursing Home Abuse

Submitted by jrlaw on Jan 14th, 2010

While nursing home abuse is common in today’s society, one hardly expects to encounter such graphic images as reported at a nursing home owned by Cathedral Rock in Fort Worth, TX. The Star Telegram reported on the story and stated that the U.S. Attorney found the nursing home staff responsible for gross nursing home negligence, considering that “it did not bathe, adequately, feed or provide toileting for people.”

 

Additionally, the staff of this nursing home reportedly left the wounds of some of its residents untreated for so long that maggot infestation began. Some of the residents required amputations of their infected body parts because of the abuse of these nursing homes. Along with a neglect of nursing home claim, the U.S. Attorney also discovered that the nursing home cheated the federal Medicare program.
