A U.S. Senate report was recently released that should cause concern for any Wyoming family who has a loved one in a nursing home. The report cites evidence of nursing home negligence in hundreds of facilities throughout the country. It is a problem that should not exist. Sadly, many injuries occur every year that are later found to have been entirely preventable were it not for substandard nursing care.
The son of a deceased woman in another state said it is too soon for him and his loved ones to be able to forgive a nursing home aid who was convicted of abusing his mother. Nursing home negligence is problematic in Wyoming and many other states. In this particular instance, the woman's son suspected that his mother was being abused, so he set up a hidden camera in her room.
