Nursing homes, inspectors reportedly fail to report abuse

Most people in New York would probably agree that nursing home abuse represents a significant problem. However, it may be difficult to quantify just how big a problem it is due to possible underreporting. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Service's Office of the Inspector General recently published a report alleging that although the law requires reporting of possible elder abuse to law enforcement, state inspectors and facilities often fail to comply. 

Bedsore risks for nursing home residents

When you have a loved one living in a nursing home or assisted living facility near White Plains or another part of New York, you want to feel confident that the care he or she is receiving as a resident is comparable to the care that you, yourself, would provide. Unfortunately, however, many nursing home residents develop injuries as a result of the insufficient care they receive in residential facilities, and the development of bedsores is a common occurrence. At La Sorsa & Beneventano, we understand that bedsores can develop when staff members fail to regularly reposition patients, and we have helped many people whose loved ones suffered injuries in nursing homes and similar environments pursue appropriate recourse.

What are some lesser-known instances of nursing home abuse?

You expect nothing but the best when you entrust a nursing home with the care of your elderly loved one. Sadly, this is often not the case. Nursing home abuse and neglect are common in New York and the rest of the country. When the topic of nursing home abuse comes up, you might think about a caregiver slapping your relative or neglecting to feed and bathe him or her. While these are common abuses, they are far from the only ones your loved one might suffer.

Is your parent’s nursing home using chemical restraints?

If your parent suffers from dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or some other kind of mental disability and lives in a New York nursing home, you likely have a nagging worry that the facility may not be providing the care (s)he needs and to which (s)he is entitled. Unfortunately, your concern may be justified.
