Society tends to regard nursing homes as a safe haven for the elderly. The reality, however, indicates a too frequent pattern of elder abuse at nursing homes that targets the most vulnerable members of our community. Nursing home abuse is a serious and widespread issue, and the victims often do not have the ability to report these incidents to the proper authorities. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert nursing home abuse attorney at 617-787-3700.
Allegations have recently come to light that indicate a former administrator at the Emerald South Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Buffalo, New York may have been involved in the abuse of a patient. Interestingly, in the past year, there have also been two instances in which elderly patients of the facility have died of “unnatural causes,” although the current allegations do not tie these mysterious deaths in.
While the New York State Department of Health (“NYSDH”) has declined to give specifics on the investigation, one can only hope that if the allegations are true, then the NYSDH will work to address the problem not only for the individual who committed the abuse, but from a systemic standpoint as well, as nursing home abuse is not an isolated issue.
