The daughter of a Pennsylvania nursing home abuse and neglect victim recently testified that her mother’s care worsened throughout her stay at the nursing home. She states that she would at times find her mother neglected and soaked in her own urine. The administrator of the nursing home is charged with nursing home neglect and involuntary manslaughter.
