After Video Of Nursing Home Abuse, Attorney General Gets Involved

Video Of Nursing Home AbuseSensing something wasn’t right, the family of an Ohio Nursing Home patient elected to put a hidden camera in their loved ones room.  After several months of recordings, the camera provided what the family had suspected all along– that staff at the Prentiss Center for Skilled Nursing Care (part of the MetroHealth) were indeed abusing the woman.

In all three nurses aides were seen mistreating the woman and have been disciplined by the facility.  Now the Ohio Attorney General is conducting their own investigation and may pursue criminal charges against these nursing home workers.

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
