We represent people involved in many kinds of accidents and incidents. This incident is one of the most outrageous. In fact, every one of our nursing home abuse cases is outrageous. How a nursing home can stand back and let its residents get abused or wilt away is beyond me.
This case involves a nurse that physically abused a patient. She grabbed his ear and nearly ripped it off. His cartilage and skin were injured. Needless to say, its reprehensible that a patient would be abused by a caregiver. Let’s hope our elected officials feel the same way.
