Still, not enough is being done to address the issue of repeat offenders continuing to work in these facilities—and individuals’ loved ones being placed at risk as a result—in spite of a history of concerning behavior and suspensions. Allegations should never be dismissed simply because the victims suffer from Alzheimer’s, workers must receive the right training to identify abuse, and reports must always reach authorities. Instead, not only do assailants continue to work at the facilities, but they continue to have access to residents through such oversights as providing overnight shifts. Still, even when the assault is found, the facilities are frequently never cited for any wrongdoing.
