Nursing Home Abuse: Janitor Accused Of Sexually Exploiting An Alzheimer’s Patient

 Nursing Home AbuseI was sickened to see another report of a janitor at the MediLodge Nursing Home (Michigan) who was caught by his co-workers sexually assaulting a patient at the facility.  Perhaps the only positive aspect of this episode of nursing home abuse is that the man’s co-workers immediately reported the incident to the police.

Presently, the janitor remains in police custody and formal charges will be forthcoming.

Episodes such as this serve as a reminder that we all need to be looking after all nursing home patients— even those we may never suspect may be victims of sexual abuse. Hopefully, when the dust settles on this investigation, we will learn that the that the timely acts by the nursing home staff protected the safety of other patients at this facility.

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
