Local Community Calls For Resignation Of Nursing Home State Officials For Job Negligence

A local community of nursing home care advocates are rallying to call for certain state officials to resign. These state officials are responsible for holding nursing homes accountable for the care residents receive. Many of the advocates have loved ones who personally experienced nursing home neglect or abuse and do not want the actions to continue.

One advocate received a call about her mother falling and met her at the hospital, almost dead. Another advocate caught aides putting a glove in the mouth of a 96 year old woman. Yet another advocate found her mother slumped in a coma, unresponsive, so she pushed to have her taken to the hospital where they deemed her severely dehydrated, with a UTI infection. These were just a few of the personal stories, causing them to speak out. For more, read the story.
