Nursing home abuse and neglect is a real problem - especially for several states. In this episode of The Investigation Game Podcast, Nic Decker, PI explains the evidence and investigation steps he takes while investigating cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect. Based on his investigative experience with such matters, Nic shares with listeners the red flags and warning signs to look for, and ways to research a nursing home, when having to make long-term care decisions for a loved one.In 2005, Nic began his career as a Private Investigator. It became evident soon after, that there was a lack of overall quality of service and innovation in the Oklahoma market. Nic sought out veterans in the fields of personal injury, nursing home abuse & neglect, and criminal defense who exemplified these long lost qualities and studied the foundational principles and practices that built their stellar reputation among their clients and colleagues. One year later, in 2006, Paradigm Investigations was born out of Nic's drive for excellence to restore honor to his field. It is this same passion and drive that continues to accelerate each of Paradigm Investigation's cases to success today.RESOURCES AVAILABLE FROM WORKMAN FORENSICSOrder Leah's new book Data Sleuth on Amazon!CONNECT WITH NIC DECKER LinkedIn: Nic Decker Website: http://investigateoklahoma.com/CONNECT WITH WORKMAN FORENSICS Youtube: @WorkmanForensics Facebook: @wforensics Twitter: @wforensics Instagram: @wforensics LinkedIn: @workmanforensics Subscribe and listen to this and more episodes of The Investigation Game on Apple Podcasts, Android, or anywhere you listen.

Robert Peterson's journey with his mother's poor nursing home care is unfortunate one that is familiar to thousands of nursing home residents and their families. It's one I've not only heard countless times, but one that I've witnessed. His mother, a frail, thin, woman with advancing dementia was at the receiving end of poor care, inadequate staff training, neglect and abuse at not only one, but two nursing homes. The second nursing home found the staff abandoning the patients altogether. Towards the end of this interview, you can the hear the sadness and the drain on Robert Peterson's heart strings as he fights back the tears. The story of Robert Peterson's mother is unfortunately not unique. In December of 2021, the New York Times published an investigative piece 'How Nursing Homes Worst Offenders Are Hidden From the Public The article's subtitle was: Thousands of problems identified by state inspectors were never publicly disclosed because of a secretive appeals process, a New York Times investigation found. This begs the question about the ability of the government oversight process to accurately inspect nursing homes and cite them for deficiencies. By not reporting bad actors and the situations that occur in these nursing homes, the government is essentially duping the public, Families and loved ones visit the government website to look up the information when trying to determine the appropriate place for their loved one to receive care. How can they make an informed decision if they don't have the entire picture. Who is to blame? Whatever the reason, the only people suffering are residents and their families. There have been numerous investigative reports and Government Studies exposing the nursing ills that are harmful to residents. . Robert's mother's story is heart wrenching. No one should have to endure this level of pain, not a son, and not any older adult. Do you have a story you'd like to share about nursing home care on SeniorsSTRAIGHTTalk?.

The story that led Martha Deaver to become an advocate for nursing home residents is, like many others, rooted in a terrible experience with 2 nursing homes in Little Rock Arkansas where her mother and mother-in=law were residents. The story is both tragic but, unfortunately, all too familiar. She ultimately shared the horrific story with a journalist who published it in Ladies Home Journal. She went on to supply detailed information and data to the director of an organization that provides information on health care issues to Consumer Reports. This resulted in Consumer Reports publishing one of the most in-depth looks at America's nursing homes to date entitled: The Crisis in America's Nursing Homes. Mrs. Deaver talks about what she knows about the failure of the nursing home industry, nursing home tragedies and ills that have been known by Federal Government agencies for decades. As a matter of fact, she has been an adviser to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Office of Inspector General (OIG). She explains how after her extensive investigative work with nursing home complaints, at her insistence they were added to the website of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services so that people seeking information about nursing homes would be able to see beyond the annual nursing home oversight survey to find more information about complaints lodged against them. In 2013 she worked with Jeff Lowenstein with the Centers for Public Integrity on a 2 year project where data from every nursing home in the country became the basis of the largest in-depth investigation into the importance of adequate staffing in our nations nursing homes. She's been recognized by the Governor of Arkansas, who said,, “She is an advocate in the best sense of the word, tirelessly supporting and defending others.” and was honored by RBI director Robert Mueller III, with the 2010 FBI Director's Community Leadership Award for the state of Arkansas. Mrs. Deaver's passion is palpable. You can hear it as she speaks about the unspeakable tragedies experienced by U.S. Nursing Home Residents. Mrs. Deaver is not only seeking to find out and call out the negative, but seeks to find the positive in the health care workers that provide the direct care to resident. She created the AANHR's first national Nursing Assistant Recognition Award to recognize nursing assistants from across the state of Arkansas. She also developed the first program acknowledging National Residents Rights Week and has chaired both events for the past five years. Today, Mrs. Deaver is the president of the Arkansas Advocates for Nursing Home Residents (AANHR), an organization dedicated to protecting residents in nursing homes from abuse and seeking prosecution for those who victimize nursing home residents.

After a several months-long investigation in Wisconsin, the sheriff of Racine County made a televised, public presentation in which he exposed the evidence that his office was able to collect regarding possible felony violations committed by the Wisconsin Elections Commission. Specifically, the evidence showed that absentee ballots were cast on behalf of nursing home residents who were too cognitively impaired to actually vote. This was then followed up by investigations at the state level, which found that this was widespread and actually led to many nursing homes in the most populous counties having voter turnout rates of 100 percent. And according to video testimony of the actual seniors and their family members, it appears that these people might've actually been forced to vote. ⭕️ Sign up for our NEWSLETTER and stay in touch
You'll never be completely prepared to place your parents or a disabled loved one in a nursing home. But, it's best to be ready if and when that moment comes. It is estimated that 50% of the older adults in the U.S. will spend at least a night in a nursing home. However, it's sad to note that many families only check out a nursing home when forced by a medical emergency. As a result, they are often unprepared and make fast selections regarding which facility would work for what may be a long time. Yes, it is a harsh reality, but don't be concerned. Sure, it should make you feel a little more pressured about your plans and the possibility of needing to make this terrible decision for your parents or loved ones, but that's where This Is Getting Old can help. Watch the full episode or listen to the podcast of Episode 106: What is a Nursing Home? Five Things to Know. Take note of the essential things you need to know about Nursing Homes and correct some misconceptions as you stay tuned. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️What Is A Nursing Home? A nursing home is where you go when you need care but you don't need to be at a hospital, but you also can't be cared for at home. It's a middle ground between the hospital and home care. Nursing homes play an essential role in our society, yet many people still negatively think about them. Why is that so? The negative impression can be attributed to the history of poor care, abuse or neglect that follows this industry after 35 years of regulation by the Federal Government. On the bright side, many good people are working in this industry, and they're working to improve the quality of care until it gets where it needs to be for older adults and people living with disabilities. ✔️ Who Pays For Nursing Home Care? Federal Dollars: Nursing homes take federal dollars in the form of Medicare for up to 100 days, but not 100% of the bill. Private Pay: After those 100 days of your Medicare coverage and you don't have supplemental insurance, you have to pay out of pocket for the difference. State Dollars: Nursing homes take state dollars, which is Medicaid. But Medicaid is only for people over 65, not people with disabilities who have spent down their own money or otherwise qualify for Medicaid. ✔️What Type Of Care Is Provided In Nursing Homes? Skilled care! It is at the heart of distinguishing a skilled nursing home from assisted living. Skilled means that a licensed nurse provides some of the needed care each day. ✔️Who Provides Skilled Care In A Nursing Home? Licensed nurses provide skilled care in nursing homes. This could be a baccalaureate-prepared registered nurse, an associate degree registered nurse, or an LPN (licensed practical nurse). A nursing home must have a licensed nurse in the building 24 hours a day, which could be an R.N. or an LPN. The facility also needs to have a registered nurse that's either the baccalaureate or the associate degree level in the building eight hours a day, seven days a week and on-call 24 hours. How does skilled care make Nursing homes different from assisted living? Nursing homes are very different from assisted living. Many assisted living advertised providing nursing care, but they're not actually talking about licensed nursing care. ✔️Who Provides Most Of The Care In Nursing Homes? Certified Nursing Assistants or CNAs do the bulk of the care that's provided to nursing home residents. All nursing staff in nursing homes are underpaid, but CNAs bear the worst of it. They aren't even paid a livable wage, which has to change. ✔️What Other Things Could Be Considered Skilled Care? Rehabilitation is another skilled care provided by nursing homes. This is done by our physical therapist, occupational therapist, or speech therapist, who are essential team members in the building Monday through Friday during regular business hours. They help our residents get stronger, help them re-learn to do things, help them be independent or they can re-learn communication skills, even help with swallowing.

In episode 56 of Love Conquers Alz, my outstanding guest co-host, Rosanne Corcoran and I have a very candid and extremely important conversation for anyone who has a loved one in a nursing home or anyone planning to live a long and fulfilling life. Like me, Rosanne cared for her mother, Rose, over a 12 year span. in 2019, Rosanne started a regional Daughterhood Circle in the Philadelphia suburbs . In November of that year she created Daughterhood The Podcast: helping Caregivers navigate their new role. You can also visit Rosanne on her website HeyRoe.com for information, inspiration and a little company. Previously, I spoke with Rick Mountcastle -Assistant Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia and retired Federal Prosecutor. Rick and his partner, Randy Ramseyer, led the investigation and prosecution of Purdue Pharma, for falsely marketing OxyContin as told in the Hulu miniseries "Dopesick", where I literally gasped out loud when it was revealed in the last episode that they were going to go after Abbott Laboratories for falsely marketing Depаkote, to nursing homes- the drug responsible for rendering my physically healthy mother non ambulatory and incontinent in a matter of seven days. Rick led the investigation and prosecution of Abbott Labs which resulted in criminal and civil penalties totaling $1.5 Billion. He is back to continue the conversation we started along with one of his lead investigators, John Peirce – who had boots on the ground inside Nursing Homes across the US. and witnessed the many negative results of understaffing that is now too common in too many nursing homes - where people are viewed as commodities and compassion is a liability. John was employed as a Special Agent – Criminal Investigator with the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS in western VA, eastern TN, & western NC. investigating numerous cases of tax fraud and financial crimes In 2007, John was hired as a Criminal Investigator by the Virginia Office of the Attorney General, Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. In 2013, he was promoted to Investigative Supervisor. While employed by the OAG, he assisted in several healthcare fraud investigations of providers including physicians, pharmaceutical companies, nursing homes, & pain clinics. Many of these investigations were conducted in conjunction with the US Attorney's Office before he retired in 2021.Note: There are many facilities that still provide excellent care, but there is nevertheless a crisis that must be stopped now.

Some people are concerned about the high cost of medical, health, and long term care in assisted living and nursing homes. Physicians have figured out how to use advances in medical technology to keep us alive a long time. Now that our family and friends are living longer we are taking care of them and assisting them with their activities of daily living. When the time comes that we need a nurse twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week to care for our loved ones, we have an opportunity to use the tax dollars they have already paid by using government benefits – namely Medicaid. Lawyers like Todd Marquardt got into this area of law to help adult caregiving children and caregiving spouses save money and qualify for benefits. Elder law attorneys help complete complicated forms and provide advice for submitting evidence for qualifying. Sometimes applications for benefits are wrongfully denied because bureaucrat case workers are actually incentivized to rush through processing, which causes mistakes. Elder law attorneys represent applicants in appeal hearings to overturn denied applications. If you know someone who is scared to death of poverty because of the high cost of long term care, refer them to an elder law attorney. Marquardt Law Firm, P.C. sponsors this show.

An ex-caregiver and convicted sex offender pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexually assaulting two women in San Diego area nursing homes. Meanwhile, the California Air Resources board has just released an updated roadmap on how the state can achieve carbon neutrality by 2045. Also, COVID-19 cases seem to be on the rise again, both across the United States and here in San Diego County. In response, the Biden administration is pushing for a new round of funding to prepare for an upcoming wave of the virus that, they say, could infect 100 million Americans by fall. Then, abortion providers are hoping that the opening of the first legal abortion clinics on the Mexican side of the border will mean safer access for women seeking services. Plus, state regulators announced this week they need more time and more information before issuing new rooftop solar rules. And finally, San Diego Opera presents the West Coast Premiere of “Aging Magician,” a hybrid opera-theatre piece that combines singing, choral work, puppetry and performance art.

In honor of National Nurses Week, we convened an all-star panel of nurses from the Green House and Pioneer Network communities to discuss the vital role that RNs, LPNs, and other nursing professionals play in truly driving culture change in long-term care. You'll hear real-life examples of how nurses can take small steps that lead to big quality-of-life improvements for elders and people living with disabilities. Nurses already have a natural desire to help others and provide comfort – and with the right leadership and guidance, nurses can form the bedrock of an elder-directed culture at nursing homes and other communal eldercare settings. Nurses aren't just pill-distributors and vitals-takers; they're the eyes, ears, and heart of an organization that can provide the personal connections that make all the difference for elders and families alike. Today's panel consists of: Ivy Gordon-Thompson, Director of Nursing at Green House adopter community John Knox Village Lora Perryman, LPN, Staff Nurse at Green House adopter community Poydras Home Joan Devine, Director of Education, Pioneer Network Marla DeVries, Chief Learning Officer, The Green House Project Carol DuMond-Stryker, Project Coach, The Green House Project Learn more about the Pioneer Network conference, which we're encouraging all friends of Green House to attend! https://www.pioneernetwork.net/pioneering-a-new-culture-of-aging-2022-conference Show notes/call to action: Learn more about The Green House Project: www.thegreenhouseproject.org

Juanita Broaddrick was permanently silenced by Twitter for her views. She speaks freely about her ban. Says the Clintons are evil people as Hillary Clinton was involved in the cover-up after Bill Clinton raped her more than 40 years ago. As owner of Nursing Homes, Broaddrick cared for Alzheimer patients and says Biden displays all the symptoms of an Alzheimer patient that is progressive. GUEST: JUANITA BROADDRICK, AUTHOR
