The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) was recently awarded the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program Grant. The grant enables LECOM to develop a new program to provide a higher quality of care for the elderly. The program focuses on seniors who are uninsured, medically vulnerable, or isolated to improve the level of geriatric care by incorporating those techniques in training for primary care providers.
Local Nursing Home Under Investigation For Neglect
You may remember a Meadville nursing home run by Golden Living Center, who found themselves the topic of a lawsuit brought by the Pennsylvania Attorney General. The suit contends that Golden Living Center routinely neglected to provide residents with proper care and falsified records to cover up the neglect.
The new program by LECOM is a welcome sight in light of recent developments at Golden Living Center. As our population ages, there is going to be an increased need for nursing home care and senior housing. This program is a needed asset to our local community, and helps Erie stay at the forefront of quality senior health care. Nursing home abuse and elder neglect are issues that our law firm sees too often, which is the reason why we don’t stand for these practices. We fight diligently for the rights of the elderly.
