NORTH READING, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Law Offices of David J Hoey, P.C. of North Reading MA has been hired by the families of some of the alleged victims in the Masconomet Nursing Home abuse scandal. Among those represented is the family of a rehab resident who received a leg fracture as a result of alleged negligent treatment by a nursing assistant at the skilled nursing facility located in Topsfield, MA.
David Hoey, whose firm has concentrated in nursing home abuse and negligence cases for over 15 years, stated, “It is unacceptable for injuries and mistreatment like this to occur at the hands of corporations who consistently put profits above the people in whose care they are entrusted. It is our hope that other families and residents will come forward with information to help us uncover the full scope and extent of the abuse at the Masconomet facility.” Masconomet is one home in a chain of for-profit facilities owned by Whittier Healthcare.
Several nursing assistants at Masconomet were recently discharged after a Department of Public Health investigation revealed incidents of sexual and psychological abuse at the home involving, among other acts, YouTube postings of inappropriate pictures taken with cell phone cameras by the nursing assistants. The incidents are presently under criminal investigation.
Anyone with information about abuse and neglect at the Masconomet facility are encouraged to call Attorney Hoey’s firm at 978-664-3633 or e-mail: [email protected]
