A local couple, formerly employed by Golden Living Center nursing home has come forward to tell their story. The sentiments shared echo the Attorney General’s allegations of neglect. Care workers are stretched beyond their capabilities, as nursing homes cut back on staff. Typically, a staff member is responsible for as many as 15 residents.
Not Enough Staff To Adequately Care For Residents of Golden Living Center
There simply aren’t enough staff members to care for residents adequately, according to the former staff members. Residents are forced to wait to use the bathroom because they are unable to do so themselves. Others are made to wait far too long to be bathed or to have their briefs changed, wounds are not attended to, and medication is not being administered in a timely manner. All of these allegations point to nursing home abuse and elder neglect. This is exactly why the Attorney General filed charges against Golden Living Center nursing home, and why Handler Henning & Rosenberg is stepping up to help anyone who has suffered injury, abuse, or neglect at Golden Living Centers.
