The state of MD has more than 800 different assisted living homes, nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities. More than 15 of these are located in Cecil County with over half being within the Elkton, MD city limits. Some are nationwide chain owned such as ManorCare, Genesis Healthcare and others are independently or privately owned. What they all have in common is it is a thankless job and these facilities are often understaffed and the staff they do have is often times not properly trained.
Some areas of the nursing home industry are highly regulated such as laws related to the standard of care, nursing home resident rights and issues surrounding insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. An area not regulated is the hiring of employees, especially unskilled workers such as patient caregivers and aides. Not being suited for the job, being overworked and underpaid can lead to frustration on the part of the caregivers which can lead to instances of abuse, neglect, malpractice, injury and death of your loved one.
