Family Of Philadelphia Elder Abuse Victim Files Lawsuit Against Delco

After being ignored by Delco employees for months, a Philadelphia family is getting justice. The family of a 77-year old woman with dementia filed suit against her nursing home operator, Delco. This comes after 3 employees as 3 Quadrangle Nursing Home employees have been arrested and charged with assault and battery against the senior citizen. 

Charges were filed only after the family of the woman installed a hidden video camera in the woman's room and recorded several employees beating, taunting, and stripping the elderly woman.

According to reports, the elder abuse consisted of nursing home employees shaking, beating, kicking and punching the elderly woman. The employees also tried to pry a ring of the woman's fingers and then stripped her down naked.

More on the story, including the video of the assault can be seen here

However terrible this story is, sadly it is not uncommon. Elder abuse is a growing problem in the United States and Washington State, as the baby boomer generation grows old and are increasingly living in nursing homes and assisted care facilities across Washington State. Many of these elders are living in Seattle and Bellevue.

Central to the Philadelphia elder abuse store is the fact that the family of the victim came to the nursing home managers with suspicions this abuse was going on. Time and time again, family members of loved ones in nursing care facilities brush off these concerns and the abuse will continue.
