Kentucky recently started putting the results of nursing home inspections online to better protect nursing home residents from nursing home abuse and neglect.
The recent push to improve nursing home care in Kentucky was brought about by a series of Herald-Leader newspaper articles regarding problems with how nursing home abuse cases are investigated. Cabinet Secretary Janie Miller responded with a review of how nursing home abuse is handled in the state.
Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration took notice of the growing problem and promised to make efforts to improve nursing home care in Kentucky. The release of inspection reports online is one of the promised improvements.
Nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect have become a growing problem throughout the country. If you have been a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, or if you suspect a loved one is being abused, you are urged to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer immediately to help you and your family.
