Nursing home abuse and neglect is more common than many families are aware of. Nursing home abuse can have a devastating impact on nursing home residents in Ohio. To address nursing home abuse, Ohio started an initiative to crackdown on nursing home facilities accused of abuse and neglect.
As part of the initative, investigators installed surveillance cameras in a nursing home in Ohio to see if nursing home residents were cared for properly and if there were any signs of abuse and neglect. While the investigators were prepared to possibly find mistratement of residents, what they found was much worse.
