Nursing home abuse is nothing new. It can lead to death especially of the weak and the elderly. There are many reasons for fatalities. It is often due to staff, which is not trained properly, or sometimes the nursing homes are under staffed. Sometimes the staff has criminal records, which are ignored; the sad part is that the inmates are too scared to report this neglect
A glaring example is of Mr. Elmore Kittower, 80, who died in November 2007.it is alleged he was tortured at Silverado Senior Living, a Calabasas nursing home, in Los Angles, California. The employees at the nursing home physically tortured him. The Los Angeles County Sheriff Department detectives have taken four people into police custody as this torture ended in death. The increasing neglect and lowering of standards in America is a matter of concern.
This makes it imperative for relatives to be alert and aware. They should be vigilant and report any case of abuse or neglect. Justice News Flash is a forum where one can publish news on nursing home abuse, medical malpractice and wrongful death.
