An 86-year-old woman’s son suspects that her brutal facial injuries were caused by nursing home abuse in a New Jersey facility, according to a report from Toni Yates at WABC-TV.
Benny Gomez says his mother suffered double fractures to her face, a broken nose and stitches. The Westfield Center Nursing Care facility claims her injuries were the result of a fall. But Gomez said that she told him before that aides had hit her.
Lack of Staff at Nursing Home Often Leads To Neglect and Abuse
John Dalli, a partner in the law firm, Dalli & Marino, LLP emphasizes the importance of staffing and supervision at nursing homes.
“Unfortunately, we see these horrors occur when facilities lack staff and proper training for the employees they do have. No matter the cause, these types of injuries are the result of abuse and neglect, and nursing homes are liable for damages.”
New Jersey state health officials and local police are investigating.
Gomez said, “You go to the hospital and you see your mother in this position…is just unexplainable.”
