Two nursing home employees were arrested for abusing an older man. According to the article, the family became suspicious a year ago, and installed a camara that subsequently showed the abuse. It's good they discovered the criminals involved, but it makes me wonder why the family left the man in the nursing home. Meanwhile, this goes on all the time, and expecting a nursing home to care for elderly family members is foolish. It takes a constant effort to visit, question, and becoming proactive with their care, which can't be accomplished long distance, or as an afterthought.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

After a Year of Suspicion

And how much abuse went undiscovered during the time when people couldn't visit due to COVID?ReplyDelete
Too much. That's why those that isolated the older folks must be pilloried, beaten with canes, and made to bake in the sun for a few days.Delete
