The growing epidemic of nursing home abuse across the state of Minnesota
is out of control. Every year, countless elderly loved ones are abused,
assaulted, robbed, or beaten at the hands of so-called caretakers. Of
the over 25,000 allegations received last year by the Minnesota Department
of Health, 97% were never even investigated.
Allegations of maltreatment, negligence, abuse, and various forms of misconduct
are on the rise, and the industry continues to protect those who are allegedly
perpetrating these crimes. In fact, the families of these elderly loved
ones are often the last to known. The facts are appalling, as the state
of Minnesota is being known as one of the most unresponsive states in
the nation regarding elder abuse.
The question arises as to why our elderly loved ones are not being taken
care of in their later stages of life--surely if one witnessed this kind
of horrific abuse occurring to a child, immediate action would be taken.
Why don’t our elders deserve the same protection? The inconsistency
in handling abuse allegations is an absolute disgrace, as those in need
of long-term care continue to increase, though the means with which to
battle abuse does not.
