Caregivers Accused Of Elder Abuse
A doctor and caregiver under his charge provided care in two unlicensed facilities for nursing home patients. Both individuals are now facing charges for caring for six elderly patients who suffered from urinary tract infections, bed sores, pneumonia, cardiac arrest, and malnutrition. Some patients were covered in urine, and one patient even died.
The physician also billed for medicines never provided to patients. He also falsified records to show care provided for the patients that was not actually given to them. For more, read the story.
