Nursing home abuse and neglect is going unreported, audit says

Kentucky residents residing in nursing homes are among our vulnerable population. They are often unable to care for their daily needs, the may be mentally incapacitated and they may suffer from physical ailments. We count on nursing homes to provide quality care for their residents, but unfortunately instances of nursing home abuse and neglect occur all too frequently. In what is disturbing news, according to a government audit over 25 percent of possible incidents of physical and sexual abuse in nursing homes are not reported to police. This is despite a federal law that mandates police be immediately notified of such incidents.

How long does one have to file suit for a car crash in Kentucky?

Unfortunately, every day people across Kentucky find themselves the victims of car accidents that cause significant damage and injury, if they are lucky to survive at all.
