When our loved ones advance in age, their healthcare needs may grow more complicated, requiring you to seek medical assistance for them outside of the home. That’s when you turn to nursing homes to help take care of your loved ones. Sending a cherished family member to a nursing home is never an easy decision, but it’s always made out of love and the best interest of your family member.
That’s what makes it all the more horrifying to learn about how rampant elder abuse and neglect are in the state of Ohio. When you send your elderly loved one to a nursing home, expecting the best quality care available, you don’t simply do not expect to lose your family unexpectedly to nursing home abuse or neglect.
Nursing homes are a hotbed for abuse and neglect to our elders. Seniors are dying due to the gross mistreatment that they receive at the blatant and malicious disregard at the hands of underqualified nursing home staff.
Some of the terrifying things that our seniors encounter at nursing homes include:
- Broken bones and concussions
- Bruises from restraints
- Wrongful death
- Given wrong medication
- Failure to diagnose conditions
- Coercion to change legal documents (like wills)
- Stolen/missing money or items
When so many nursing homes are for-profit, it’s common to discover that corners are cut. It’s sickening how our family and loved ones are regarded as little more than a means to make a profit, and their health and wellbeing are sacrificed for the sake of making a dollar. Nursing home often have understaffed facilities, poorly trained staff, and careless or indifferent nurses.
It’s not right and it‘s not acceptable.
