Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse Archives

A former Heritage Care Nursing Home resident alleges negligence

A dementia patient, who had previously resided at Heritage Care Nursing Home, filed a lawsuit against the facility and its owners on Dec. 4, 2017. She alleges that she was treated negligently at their hands during the nearly eight months during 2016 and 2017 that she lived there.

At risk of wandering: Nursing homes have to monitor patients

Approximately six out of every 10 people with dementia may wander as a result of their condition. These individuals may not know where they are or could even be in a disoriented dream state in which they believe they are somewhere they are not. They may not remember their names, be unable to remember where they live or stay and may not have any information on how to get into contact with someone who can help.

Proposed legislation would protect nursing home residents

Nursing home regulations have come under scrutiny following the deaths of 14 residents of a Florida facility in Hollywood Hills in the wake of Hurricane Irma. U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is trying to do something on a federal level to help protect residents of nursing homes throughout the country.

Inadequate staff leads to nursing home abuse and neglect

One of the more common causes of nursing home abuse and neglect is the lack of adequate staffing. Without enough staff members on duty, caregivers find themselves in a situation where they can barely provide the minimal care to the most demanding patients. Meanwhile, patients who are lying quietly get ignored. That can lead to problems like bed sores, breathing and hygiene issues and worse.

Wrongful death lawsuit filed against nursing home

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed by the daughter of a woman who fell while a resident at the Trinity Healthcare Services of Logan nursing home. The lawsuit alleges that the former resident was the victim of medical negligence and medical malpractice that eventually led to her death.
