Nursing home abuse is all too prevalent in nursing homes throughout Georgia, and negatively impacts millions of families who have trusted these homes to care for their elderly relatives. No Nursing Home Abuse is seeking to combat nursing home abuse throughout the state of Georgia.
You can view the photos and videos I have secretly taken, documenting in full detail the abuse my mother and grandmother faced while living in nursing homes. Unless something is done to stop this horrific crime against basic human dignity, more innocent lives will be lost.
After my momma Annie Doris Hall had a Cerebral Vascular Accident = Stroke, which left her completely paralyzed on her left side, she also has Dysphagia = Difficulty Swallowing. Therefore, through a Gastric Peg Feeding Tube, Momma has to be given her medicine, nutrients and water. Since the stoke, she is prone to becoming emotional, and requires medication for anxiety. To sum it all up: Momma requires complete and total care all day and everyday. I received a call from Trina Culver, LPN, while on duty at the Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home. And she stated that four of Momma's medications, would be discontinued.The discontinued medications was ALBUTEROL SULFATE for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), GLYBURIDE for Diabetes, ALPRAZOLAM for Anxiety, and FERROUS SULFATE for Anemia. She claimed that Momma's health was improving until she didn't need that medicine anymore. Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home was already written up again by Healthcare Facility Regulation Division for failure to properly care for my momma.
They had already allowed her to contract METHICILLIN RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS (MRSA). And not one act of disciplinary actions has been taken against these evil ways of this Nursing Home operations. Can you imagine the "terror", one must feel. Knowing that your cries of desperation are going unheard. Especially being ignored by the people who profess' that they care about your welfare and well being. It must be a feeling of being in a cage surrounded by barbarians. Doing you underserved harm at all times. Until you escape from them or they kill you. "God Jehovah tells about these kinds of people at in 2ND TIMOTHY 3: 1-5:
1. But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3. Unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
4. Traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
5. Having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
(GALATIANS 6:7). Do not deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
After being diagnosed with having (MRSA), while being in the care at Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home, my momma Annie Doris Hall continues to suffer from infection. I had to literally insist that momma be treated for this infection. She has complications from MRSA. This case of MRSA was first reported to Healthcare Facility Regulation Division and Ombudsmen. I talked via phone with Karen Rahm, but nothing has been done. I have also talked with some of Georgia's Officials TO NO AVAIL!!! One thing we can be very certain of, and that is GOD JEHOVAH is watching (PROVERBS 15:3). The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.
Even after a News Special Report aired on a "Case of MRSA Found at a Nursing Home" complaint filed pertaining to my momma Annie Doris Hall and my complaint face to face in with Cathy, R.N. She was an inspector with Healthcare Facility Regulation Division of Georgia. The Joe-Anne Burgin Nursing Home continued to withhold several of momma's medications -- Albuterol Sulfate being one of them. This medication is for momma having Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
