Texas Nursing Home Employees Fired After Reporting Abuse

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on April 26, 2012

Two nurse assistants at Bandera Road’s Princeton Place nursing home in San Antonio were fired after reporting abuse of elderly patients.

The nurses reported that some patients had unusual and excessive bruising in the shape of finger imprints, and also had torn skin on their faces.There are 134 patients at the nursing home, and the employees wondered if there is enough staff to take care of all of them since many are left unattended.

A few hours after telling the nursing home administration about the abuse and neglect, the two workers were suspended for insubordination and eventually fired.

Inspectors from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services last year cited the facility for poor record keeping, failing to hire employees with no legal history of abusing, neglecting or mistreating residents, and unacceptable treatment of residents on feeding tubes.

Nursing homes are not what they used to be after state budget cuts that decreased nursing home staff by about one-fourth since 2001. Also, tort reform has made it more difficult to sue nursing homes for malpractice.

But the Law Office of W.T. Johnson won’t allow nursing homes to get away with this kind of treatment. It is important for you to contact our personal injury lawyers immediately if you suspect your loved one is experiencing nursing home abuse or neglect. We will get them the justice they deserve.
