In a Georgia Alzheimer’s care facility, Alzheimer’s Care of Commerce, more than 20 employees are facing charges of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. The facility’s administrator Donna Wright is one of the alleged perpetrators. An investigation occurred after there were multiple complaints of abuse and neglect about the home. The facility engaged in numerous illegal practices, including employing convicted felons, improper medication administration, and subjecting residents to inhumane practices and degrading conditions. The staff used ‘double diapering’ wherein two diapers are placed on the patient so the staff doesn’t have to change soiled diapers as much. This practice is extremely humiliating and unsanitary. The current and former employees are faced with over 70 charges. See article at McKnight’s.
