In an effort to help raise awareness of of nursing home neglect, AARP recently launched a blog titled “Nursing Home Voices Series” to highlight instances of nursing home care failures by posting a new story each day during the 2011 Indiana Legislative Session. Hopefully through this effort, AARP can help raise awareness of the poor quality of care found in many of Indiana’s nursing homes. The blog is a collection of experiences submitted by current and former residents and their loved ones. Perhaps through hearing from real constituents, the legislators and other policy makers will be persuaded to take action on Indiana’s poor nursing home quality record.
If you or your loved one is a current or former resident of an Indiana nursing home and you have a story to share, you can submit on their website. If you feel that as a resident you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, contact an experienced nursing home abuse and neglect lawyer. Our office offers free consultations with a personal injury attorney who can assist you in holding a nursing home accountable for their actions.
