Nursing home neglect cases must be taken seriously

Nursing home negligence is a serious problem that nobody who is seeking care in this type of facility should have to worry about. Residents pay a lot of money to have their needs taken care of. Unfortunately, some people who seek employment here will see it as easy money and will try to do as little as possible, even if it means that the residents suffer. We don't like to think about this happening, but we do need to be realistic about it.

Two Nursing Home Employees Abuse Alzheimer's Patient

The New Jersey nursing home abuse attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that two Florida nursing home employees have been charged with battery of a person over 65 and are being held without bond Friday after a nanny cam captured footage of the women abusing an elderly patient with Alzheimer's.

Fighting Nursing Home Abuse

Two women charged with caring for elderly patients faced a Long Island judge Tuesday, accused of beating an 88 year old man in his nursing home bed because he didn't want to shower. According to the victim's daughter, Patty Izzo, the two women "put a pillow on his face while one person was punching him." Izzo later found her father, a World War II veteran, brutally beaten in his nursing home bedroom. "Like an animal," Izzo said. "They treated him like an animal."

New scrutiny of nursing home, hospital patients' bed rail deaths

Bed rails used in hospitals and nursing homes might at first blush seem the most innocuous of things and, when mentioned in the context of safety, deemed to be tools of the trade that enhance safety outcomes. The devices enable patients to more easily pull themselves out of bed and prevent incidents of patients falling out of beds. Through the use of safety straps, they also allow for temporary restraint of some patients -- for example, those still groggy following surgery -- who might otherwise attempt to get mobile too quickly.

Opinion: State has to do better investigating nursing home abuse

In a recent media commentary, a disability policy specialist takes a strong and critical aim at the New Jersey legislature for alleged passivity and inaction that is undermining the legal rights and adequate care of developmentally disabled persons in state nursing homes and other residential care units.
