There is alleged nursing home abuse involving a New York nursing home. In this alleged nursing home abuse, 17 nursing home workers face charges.
The alleged nursing home abuse is discussed in the June 12, 2014 wkbw.com article titled “HighPointe Nursing Home Worker, Facing Charges, Speaks Out” as well as the earlier April 24, 2014 wgrz.com article titled “17 Former Nursing Home Workers Charged.”
One aspect of these alleged charges, which is sometimes alleged in nursing home lawsuits, is that nursing home records were falsified regarding the care of the nursing home resident.
An excerpt from the wgrz.com article:
The CWA Union Local 1168 says six of those arrested are union members, and they were charged with allegedly falsifying documents and have been fired. “The falsification was related to patient care that was documented as being provided and allegedly was not,” according to a statement from the union.
While this alleged nursing home abuse happened in New York, the issue of alleged falsified nursing home records occurs in Illinois nursing home lawsuits as well as those nationally. Of course, one factor that might motivate nursing homes to falsify records is to conceal nursing home abuse, neglect, or nursing home accidents that may have occurred during the care of a nursing home resident.
