Thinking about Nursing Homes Today-Read about a Woman Who was Raped in a Nursing Home (Chicago)

13 May 2009 at 9:41:38 AM

in Chicago. Pretty disgusting story. Here you have a 69 year old woman in a nursing home, a young man who not only showed the staff that he was sexually frustrated but nobody apparently did a check of his criminal history first. The man actually had a warrant out for his arrest on felony battery charges. The administrator for the nursing home tried to cover it up and lied that the sex was consensual.

Makes me wonder a couple of things about the Glen Rose Nursing Home (and, since ti's a non-profit, is it possible for me to know the answer?) Does the HR staff there submit all possible staff, including doctors, to criminal background checks? Is it possible to know the list of people who work for GRMC? Since it's part of private non-profit Glen Rose Medical Foundation, it may not be. How does the public know about the people who are on staff at any given nursing home?

More: I went over to Google news to see if the above story was an unusual occurrence.

From the BBC- Man arrested following the death of a 75 year old resident in Wiltshire (although makes me wonder if this was a husband)

Hot Springs (AR) Star- Allegations of misconduct by a contracted employee at Castle Manor Nursing Home

Cunningham said that she was told by a staff member at the nursing home in late December about allegations that a male contracted employee, from the Hot Springs VA, had done inappropriate things with a female resident. Cunningham, who is a Registered Nurse, had been working at the Fall River Hospital and filled in at times at the nursing home.

(Incidentally, as a side note, this article says that patients are taken to the hospital for lab work, because the rate can be reiumbursed is more at the hospital. I presume that includes Medicare. Now, that's in Arkansas, does the same type of thing happen in Texas, too?) (I think NY?) employee of the Achieve Rehab and Nursing Facility charged with felonies in theft of credit card from a patient.

Dunn, NC -ABC- Patient at Magnolia Living Center says she was sexually assaulted by an employee.Mother is a stroke victim.

2 caretakes accused of stealing painkillers from nursing home (Lebanon)

So, I ask again, what procedures are in place to check out who works for nursing homes, and how can the public know who works for a given nursing home? Or can they?
