Handling claims of elder abuse, nursing home neglect
The obscurity of elder abuse is due in part to the largely off-limits status of nursing facilities and hospice agencies to the media and public at-large. Add to this the number of recent regulatory agency budget cuts and the stress placed on likely overworked and underpaid elder-care facility regulators – not to mention the elder-care labor force itself – and it's no surprise that many victims of nursing home neglect and elder abuse just fall through the cracks. That's enough to make anyone who has a loved one in an elder-care facility think twice about his or her comfort and safety.
