Who is Holding Negligent Nursing Home Staff Accountable?

A reoccurring theme in instances of nursing home abuse and neglect include a lack of accountability. Nursing home residents often fall victim to abuse or neglect in part because they are physically or mentally unable to report that the abuse occurred. Worse, an audit recently released by the New York State Office of the State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli shows that even when the abuse is reported it takes New York State 5 times longer than it should to complete an investigation, an average of 228 days.
