Big win for victims of nursing home abuse

Posted on September 28, 2016 at 11:37 PM
Victims of nursing home abuse and neglect have won the right to have their cases heard by a jury. In a landmark change in regulations by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services  nursing homes can no longer require residents to submit claims to private arbitration. 

The change was prompted by high-profile cases in which residents and their families were barred from seeking relief in the courts from horrendous instances of physical abuse. In one of the cases, a 100-year-old nursing home resident was strangled to death by a roommate, and in another, a 94-year-old resident died of a head wound at a Pennsylvania facility. 

The rule will go into effect in November 2016. Unfortunately, it does not apply retroactively to residents who signed admission contracts before that date.

Every person is having the right to work in the criteria in which they have been hired to do their work. For the nurses it has been a great hearing and I am glad that they are being able to get their rights.

We hired nurses to help us take good care of our loved ones and it is not right, they will abuse them especially older people. They don't have much strength to fight and we don't have to take advantage of it. We have our own rights in everything and we must know it. Fighting for our own rights is not a bad thing. Laws are made for us to have an equal treatment for each other and to have a better society.

Why Govt. has not implemented new policies to save from such incidents, well, it was mind-freaking for all of us when we heard about the victims of nursing home abuse, hopefully, such incidents will not occur in future.

Is it right for anyone to do that and then, instead of being shameful, walk with proud and also gets free from the law, so pathetic by the way, it is the just like eating the meat of someone alive?
