Mar. 16, 2006: Delaware: New Allegations Surface In Nursing Home Hearings:"The General Assembly's Joint Sunset Committee is reviewing the agency charged with protection of nursing home residents amid a new allegation about lax oversight. A registered nurse says her mother was sexually assaulted five years ago at an assisted-living facility in Rehoboth Beach. According to Beth Ewell, of Lewes, the attack happened after she complained that the facility had insufficient staff to care for patients. She said yesterday her report was never filed with the Division of Long Term Care Residents Protection."

Edwardsville nursing home fined $50,000 in patient death, Illinois:"An Edwardsville nursing home has been fined $50,000 for improperly giving pain medication to a patient who died.

That dose was given four hours after a previous dose of OxyContin was given to her at a hospital emergency room."

Thursday, March 16th, 2006: Wisconsin: Nursing home marred by alleged abuse, cover-up:"The state of Wisconsin has released a report on the Pleasant View Nursing Home that alleges at least two incidents of resident abuse and subsequent attempts to cover it up. The report, completed last month by a division of the state Department of Health and Family Services, tracks the alleged actions of an unidentified Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and other staff from June to November 2004. The CNA is accused of intentionally shoving a resident, who fell to the floor, in June 2004, and hitting another resident, who subsequently hit his head on a bed footboard, in November 2004. The same CNA was allegedly known as a bully among staff and residents, according to the state report."

February 26, 2006: Australia: Police check plan for carers:"AGED care specialists will consider making police checks mandatory for all nursing home workers at an emergency summit in Canberra next month. The meeting of the Aged Care Advisory Committee (ACAC) was called after allegations four women aged in their 90s were sexually abused by a male staff member in a Victorian nursing home last year. Minister for Ageing Santo Santoro said the March 14 summit would look for solutions to allegations of abuse, including whether to introduce mandatory reporting of suspected abuse and protection for whistleblowers."

10/9/2005: Pennsylvania: After two wheelchair deaths, nursing home to close:"A troubled nursing home where two residents died in wheelchair accidents this year has told state officials that it will close. Two residents at the Villa Teresa skilled nursing facility in Lower Paxton Township died after wandering outside the facility in their wheelchairs, losing control and crashing on a sloping driveway. The state Department of Health had downgraded the facility's license to "provisional 3," which is one step from closure. State officials had given the home until Nov. 19 to correct problems, including concerns about falls and bedsores among some residents."

Sixteen patients were killed in a nursing home fire in Hartford, Conn., in February 2003. Fifteen more perished at a Nashville facility seven months later. Neither had the sprinkler and alarm systems required by federal law for newer centers."
