Former worker arrested for nursing home abuse and neglect

When families place a loved one in a nursing home, they are doing so for that person to receive the care they need medically and personally. While most facilities will do their best to hire qualified staff and care for their residents, there are some that commit nursing home abuse and neglect. This can come in various ways. Often, family members are unaware of what has happened. When it is discovered, the resident might be injured, ill or even lose their lives. Having legal advice is an important part of seeking compensation through a lawsuit.

A former employee at a nursing home who had been charged with sexually abusing a co-worker over the summer now faces new allegations that he also assaulted residents at the facility. The man, 41, had been arrested in August after the initial allegations. He was later indicted. These new charges are linked to similar behaviors that are alleged to have happened with residents. At the time of his arrest, the man was working at another health facility.

All nursing home residents deserve to be treated with care and compassion. Since they are dependent on the staff to receive medication, be cleaned and fed and much more, any deviation in those duties can lead to major problems. Family members who believe their loved one has been neglected or abused should know that there were legal steps they can take to put a stop to the behavior and to be compensated. The investigation is critical to gather evidence and move forward with a case. This is true when there are sexual abuse allegations just as when there are other forms of nursing home abuse and neglect.

A man who was employed at a nursing home and was facing charges for sexually assaulting a fellow worker is now being investigated for these same behaviors with residents. Family members who believe their loved one was victimized should speak to a lawyer about a case. A law firm that helps people who have been confronted with nursing home abuse and neglect should be contacted immediately.
