One of the most common issues that come up in dealing with nursing home abuse and neglect cases — indeed, one of the things that compels many plaintiffs to file suit on behalf of a loved one — is the desire to stop senseless and avoidable tragedies from happening again.
Unfortunately, however, mistakes tend to have a way of repeating themselves.
That is why it was encouraging to see the press release on behalf of the University of California, which announced that UC Irvine will provide training and support to nursing homes across Orange County, California as part of a class action lawsuit against 22 facilities for under-staffing nursing homes.
This is a creative approach that has the potential to generate a lot of good and, hopefully, train the staffs of facilities already stretched thin, to better identify and prevent abuse and neglect and better use the resources at their disposal.
