Nursing Home Abuse Is a Nation-Wide Problem

Recently, a Long Island area nursing home has come under public scrutiny for charges of alleged abuse at the hands of the facility's workers.   According to an article by the Long Island Press, several workers in a Medford nursing home were accused of covering up the death of one of their residents.  An alarm which alerts workers that a resident may be in distress was ignored for over two hours, according to some reports.  The death is proposed to have been caused by a failure of one of the workers to connect the resident's ventilator machine in at night.
