Homecare and Senior Neglect

Submitted by jrlaw on Jun 23rd, 2011

Elderly neglect

caused by homecare workers can be one of the most dangerous of all situations. When this happens in a nursing home, the victim at least has the advantage of there being a lot of other employees around who, hopefully, will notice that something is wrong. When the elder is isolated in their own home, it may be very hard for them to communicate to someone that something is wrong. There are some things you can do to make it easier for them.

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.
