A resident allegedly assaulted another resident of the Kepnock Grove nursing home in Australia, during his stay at the facility while staff ignored the incidents. The facility is also being accused of not attending to medical issues and depriving residents of adequate amounts of food. The nursing home is run by Carinity Baptist Community Services and when their officials were notified of the accusations, a full investigation was launched. That investigation revealed some serious issues that have been resolved. The facility will remain under close watch of officials.
Making the decision to place a loved one in an assisted living facility or nursing home is difficult. It is important to feel confident that they will be safe and taken care of during their stay. When that confidence is broken, those responsible for putting your loved one in harms way should be held accountable for their actions. Contacting a personal injury attorney can help you hold the facility responsible for the neglect or harm of your loved one.
