Saratoga is a town located on the western edge of Silicon Valley and is known for its small scale and sophisticated feel. It was once a European settlement founded in 1848 by William Campbell who built a saw mill there. The city later became mostly agricultural but now serves as a commuter town for Silicon Valley. Because it is referred to as a “bedroom community” for Silicon Valley, it comes as no surprise that it has been consistently ranked in the upper echelons of the best educated and top earning towns in America, most recently in Bloomberg Businessweek, with a median household income of $237,804 and an average household net worth of $1,516,814. This makes Saratoga the 18th richest zip code in the United States. There is currently 3 Skilled Nursing Facilities located in Saratoga.
Nursing Homes have an obligation to provide the best care possible to their residents. The rights of the resident should always be adhered to when caring for the elderly; their health and comfort should be the nursing facilities foremost concern. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and Nursing Home Residents are sometimes neglected and abused. The violators of these Patients’ Rights are not only harming the physical and mental health of Nursing Home residents but are also taking away the dignity and individuality that these residents deserve.
The ways in which a Skilled Nursing Facility can be guilty of neglect are numerous. Some include understaffing, over-medicating the patients in order to chemically restrain them, not administering proper care for the patient that results in dehydration and malnutrition, not exercising with the patient or not identifying vulnerable areas for pressure ulcers , and not properly containing the spread of infections. This neglect and abuse can result in the pain and suffering of your loved ones and can even lead to their Wrongful Death.
