A St. Louis, Missouri family has accused the officials at a nursing home of allowing abuse of their 86 year-old mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease. The woman suffered from a swollen eye after what the nursing home reported to be a bad fall.
The woman’s daughter, Robin, received a call from the nursing home indicating that her mother had fallen from her bed. Another employee told Robin that the personal injuries were caused by a fall that occurred while the woman was walking away from the bathroom.
These conflicting stories, and the nature of the severe personal injuries, have caused Robin to suspect nursing home abuse. The victim suffered a broken nose, broken cheekbones, and severe bruising to her eye. Local police are still investigating the accusations.
The Delmar Gardens nursing home has issued a statement saying that the family’s allegations of nursing home abuse are currently the subject of an internal investigation.
