Investigators are looking into charges of elderly abuse at a collection of group homes. They have arrested the director of one of the homes after discovering he was on probation for elder abuse and had been ordered to stay away from such facilities. He was convicted last year of causing great bodily harm to an elderly or dependent person and served three months in jail. He is also the target of a nursing home negligence lawsuit filed by the family of a man who drowned in a pool while living in one of his group homes. The man was taken into custody for violating conditions of his probation after initially refusing entry to investigators checking on conditions of the house. The man is also the son of another director who was arrested on 16 charges of elder abuse after police raided the unlicensed board and care facility. This case highlights the importance of doing a thorough examination before placing a loved one in a nursing home. Some nursing homes are ill equipped to deal with the pressures of a nursing home which often times leads to nursing home abuse and negligence.
