The Clintonville Manor nursing home in North Haven, Connecticut has been put on a federal list of “special focus” facilities after state inspections found nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect. Residents of the home told inspectors they were mistreated, abused, and neglected by administrators.
The nursing home was cited for failing to treat residents with dignity and respect and without fear of reprisal. The state report also says the nursing home failed to provide residents “with basic necessities, such as meals and snacks, with reasonable accommodation of their needs.”
Staff members told inspectors that the administrator for the past two years did not allow residents to eat anything in their rooms to avoid spills or crumbs. Residents with limited mobility were also barred from eating in their rooms. The nursing home also restricted residents’ access to their personal money.
Clintonville Manor has responded to the allegations by suspending its administrator and assistant administrator, and have hired a new administrator.
If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglect at their nursing home you are urged to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer to discuss the situation and get your loved one the justice they deserve.
