A hidden camera has caught nursing home abuse and neglect on tape and the footage was used to prove that a nursing home resident’s pressure sores were not adequately cared for. Per the doctor’s orders for pressure sore treatment, the resident was supposed to be turned every two hours. The cameras revealed to the family that the nursing home staff had not been turning and repositioning him and that the nursing home staff had lied on the charts. The state has responded by revoking the corporation’s business license and banning them from doing business in the state. Other complaints against the corporation include failure to maintain feeding tubes, nursing home residents being left to lie in their own waste for hours, and falsifying paperwork to cover up violations.
