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.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
