Texas senator calls for abusive nursing homes to close

Lawmakers in the state of Texas are urging for the close of nursing care facilities that have been linked to cases of abuse, Time Warner Cable News reported on August 14.

In a meeting on August 13, the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission proposed the aggressive move. The commission urged the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services to remove the licenses of nursing care facilities that have experienced at least three serious violations in two years. Some Democratic representatives protested this move, taking issue with the black-and-white aspects of enforcement.

Nursing care facilities provide assistance to families looking for a place that can ensure protective care for their elderly relatives. However, sometimes some nursing homes fail to provide the services that your loved ones deserve. If your senior relatives have experienced dangerous sub par care, neglect or abuse, call the experienced legal team of Hotze Runkle by calling (877) 919-0830 today.
