The Charleston Examiner took a look at instances of nursing home abuse and came up with some interesting statistics. According to the article:
About 1 of every 700 United States nursing homes have been issued a citation for some form of elder abuse. This may include residents being punched, kicked, neglected, or choked by either employees or fellow residents.
Thank you to the Charleston Examiner for these statistics and information. Attorney Doug Stoehr is a central Pennsylvania lawyer specializing in nursing home abuse and negligence. For more information on his practice, please visit our website.
