Nursing Home Residents Should Never Be Emotionally or Physically Abused
According to the MDH report an employee of the nursing home emotionally and physically abused a number of residents at the facility. The Department of Health determined the facility is responsible for neglect of supervision and that the facility failed to ensure that the residents were treated in an appropriate and respectful manner by multiple staff members. The facility has subsequently agreed to improve policies and procedures and retrain staff.
