Can a Nursing Home with a History of Abuse Be Changed?

The Gatti Law Firm

As a basic human instinct, we want to believe that people can change. This is the same for people and institutions on which we rely—like a nursing home.

When a nursing home has a history of abuse, it can be easy for those in need to be skeptical about choosing the facility to care for their elderly loved one. One thing that may need to be considered, though, is whether the nursing home can change their ways and introduce a positive, safe environment to residents.

There are a few select things that may help change.

If the nursing home has been reported numerous times, there is the potential for the nursing home to fix what problems they may have. For instance, if there is one party associated with multiple reports, firing them and reporting them to the proper authorities can be a small change needed to get the entire nursing home in the right direction.

However, if the problem runs deeper into the management, either the entire facility must change or there will continue to be problems in the nursing home. As such, you must be sure you are looking into all reports of nursing home abuse, see if the problem has been fixed, and determine whether your loved one would be safe in the care of the facility.

Nursing homes can change—but there must be significant effort to regain a positive environment and reputation. However, in many instances, you must make a decision based on your own instincts and even if a nursing home has been cleared of many problems, you may still feel uncomfortable about allowing them to care for your loved one.
