Nursing home deaths, injuries linked to medicine errors

It is one of the dirty little secrets of nursing home life - scores of Illinois residents are sickened each year because of medication errors. Some of these patients even die as a result of this type of nursing home neglect. Consider the case of an 81-year-old Midwestern man who was slated to stay only a few days in a rehab center after a heart treatment. The man entered the facility in fine health, only to leave in a diabetic coma. Why? No one at the nursing home had bothered to notice that he had diabetes. It was left untreated for days. Even though the hospital had saved the man's life through the heart treatment, the negligent nursing home had ended it.

Ohio nursing homes could be subject to camera law

Ohio nursing home patients, administrators and family members deserve to know what is going on inside local care facilities. Now, new legislation out of the state capital could help protect residents from nursing home abuse and neglect. That measure would allow patients to legally set up monitoring devices such as cameras, which could capture images of staff members providing inadequate care. The bill has not yet passed, but it is under consideration by a judiciary committee.
