Johnson Mathers Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Allegations – Circeo Law Firm
The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is not one that is taken lightly. You take the time to visit the selected home and meet the doctors and nurses that will be caring for your loved one. But what happens if you have put your faith in the wrong facility?
Johnson Mathers Nursing Home, located in Carlisle, KY, has a history of poor regulatory compliance and is now being shut down. This comes after numerous violations over the years, and in 2016, a $214,000 penalty for their substandard care. A 2021 survey from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services reveals the depth and breadth of their violations in a 414-page report. The violations are too numerous to list, but range from infection control to abuse and neglect and prescription medication theft among many others.
You need to know what to look for if you suspect nursing home abuse or neglect. The signs can manifest psychologically in the forms of agitation, withdrawal, or fear. Physical warnings, such as malnutrition and weight loss or unsanitary or unclean conditions can indicate larger problems with the facility. And finally, medical concerns such as overdoses and infections indicate a lack of oversight and nursing home abuse and neglect.
