Nursing Home Abuse Allegations in New Jersey

A former nurse is alleging abuse allegations against a New Jersey nursing home, according to a NJ.com news report. Nikki Thompson, the whistleblowing nurse, claims she was forced to resign after coming forward about the abuse after eight years of working at the facility. A photo from the facility surfaced that showed an 85-year-old resident with dementia tied to a wheelchair with a bedsheet. The resident was discovered by a nurse aide on duty. 

Nursing Home Abuse Study: How Scammers Rip Off the Elderly

A recent study reported by the New York Daily News revealed shocking results regarding nursing home abuse: one in five residents is a victim of physical or verbal abuse not from workers, but rather, from other residents. While elderly residents suffering from dementia is the likely cause of these saddening statistics, a more serious form of abuse is prevalent in nursing homes - financial fraud. In fact, as many as 5 percent of more than 2,000 seniors polled at 10 New York nursing homes over the course of six weeks stated they had been cheated.
