Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway’s office will not be reopening a possible nursing home abuse case involving an elderly woman’s unexplained injuries. The resident of Cambridge Place Nursing Home in Lexington, Kentucky was found baldly injured in a storage room after reportedly falling from her walker.
An attorney for the injured woman asked that the case be reopened; however, the executive director of the attorney general’s Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control denied an investigation saying there was “no physical or medical evidence of an assault and there is no evidence of criminal neglect.”
Staff at Cambridge Place told investigators in January 2009 that the injured woman went missing after moving through the hall, and was found after having fallen from her seated walker.
If you believe yourself or a loved one to be a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect you are advised to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer to discuss your legal rights.
