State Report Details Violence in One Nursing Home

A survey released this week by the Department of Health details multiple resident altercations at the same nursing home in the past year and a half. The facility received citations in connection with incidents occurring last August, last October, and this January.

The facility wasn’t cited for the incidents themselves, rather, for failing to report the incidents to the health department immediately, the document says. Two of the incidents involved one resident hitting another, and third incident was a threat of violence made from one resident to another. For more, read the story.

Robert W. Carter, Jr. is a Virginia attorney whose law practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of the victims of nursing home and assisted living neglect and abuse in Richmond, Roanoke, Norfolk, Lynchburg, Danville, Charlottesville, and across Virginia.
