You?re Giving Me What?!

By Richard Shea


It is no secret that Connecticut’s nursing home “system” leaves a lot to be desired. We pay outrageous costs for average and below average care in many cases. A new federal report revealed an even more alarming trend. Connecticut nursing homes are distributing anti-psychotic drugs to residents that do not need them. And for the big picture perspective, Connecticut nursing homes are distributing these medications faster than every other state in the country except Louisiana.

Unfortunately this report highlights why many families choose to have an attorney involved in their nursing home advocacy. A family member in a nursing home is vulnerable and rarely in a position to protect their own rights.
