Wyoming families with aging loved ones currently residing in nursing homes will want to review recent testimonies offered in a hearing before the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. The testimony was given in reference to nursing home negligence, which is a problem in this state and others across the country. One of the people who testified said that abuse had occurred in one of the highest rated facilities in the nation.
Before 2019 comes to an end, many Wyoming residents will help their aging parents transition into nursing homes. The reasons that prompt such decisions may vary but most involve a mother's or father's inability to continue to function on a daily basis in an independent living environment. Nursing home negligence is problematic in this state and many others, and adult sons and daughters of patients will want to be on their guard to protect their loved ones from injury.
