Braswell’s Hampton Manor nursing home of Yucaipa, California along with three people have been charged with one felony count of elder abuse causing great bodily injury. The nursing home abuse is alleged by a criminal complaint filed by the California Attorney General’s Office.
The abuse allegedly happened last August. The nursing home, along with two people, were recently arraigned and pleaded not guilty, with a third person scheduled for video arraignment.
Two of the accused are due in court March 12 and were released on their own recognizance.
The abuse of our nation’s elderly in nursing homes across our country is unfortunately not a rare occurrence. We urge you to be on the look out for signs of abuse or neglect if you have a loved one in a nursing home. If you suspect abuse, report the problem to authorities immediately and contact a nursing home abuse lawyer to discuss your legal options.
