I had to do a double-take when I saw some nursing home staffing statistics referenced in a report released by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).  An alarming 92% of nursing homes across the country have at least one criminal– in one form or another– working at the facility.

Alarming Number Of Criminals Caring For Elderly In Nursing HomesIn calculating this disturbing statistic, 260 nursing homes were randomly selected from the almost 16,000 nursing homes that receive Medicare funding.  Lists of current employees were then compared with data from FBI criminal records.

The study defined a criminal as an employee with a conviction for an assortment of criminal activities such as: crimes against property (theft), drug-related convictions, motor vehicle theft and crimes against others.

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
