Nursing home residents left alone to fend for themselves

Published on November 18th, 2008

Whatever happened to the American work ethic?  Whatever happened to common decency?  Recently one of the nurses at a nursing home was arrested for leaving several elderly residents alone and without proper care and supervision.   One of the residents got injured after the nurse left and put another resident in charge! 60-year-old Epifania V. Fitzgerald returned 2 1/2 hours later.  The authorities were there waiting on her.

One of the facility’s residents, a woman, had slipped and fallen in the bathroom. Another resident had called 911.   Fitzgerald was supposed to have been watching out for 21 elderly patients.

Authorities would not identify the facility.   Why do they protect these homes?  This is outrageous. if this was a day care center, the "authorities" would have shut down the place.
