Woman allegedly sexually abused in New York nursing home

From sexual assault to reckless neglect, nursing home patients sometimes face a number of threats while staying in a facility that is supposed to be taking care of them. Furthermore, some of them may have difficulty standing up for their rights for a variety of reasons, whether they think no one will listen or lack the resources they need to move out. Nursing home abuse is particularly upsetting and occurs too frequently in New York, NY, and across the nation. As a result, this mistreatment must be addressed immediately whenever it takes place.

A disabled woman who was staying in an Utica nursing home was allegedly sexually abused by a 48-year-old man who used to work for the center as a certified nurse's aide. The suspect was recently taken into custody and now faces a number of charges. He is currently being held without bail in the Oneida County Jail.

In addition to sexual abuse charges, the suspect is also facing charges which stem from willfully violating health laws and endangering the disabled patient's welfare. If the former nursing home employee is convicted, he could spend up to 21 years behind bars.

On top of verbal, physical and sexual attacks, abuse also takes other forms, such as nursing home neglect, which may be less visible. For example, patients who don't receive the care they need may suffer from malnutrition, dehydration and other serious problems. When someone wants to take legal action and hold those who are responsible for abuse accountable, they may want to consider talking about what happened with an attorney.
