Lawsuit Filed Against Abusive Nursing Home

A negligence lawsuit has been filed against the Metropolitan Jewish Geriatric Center in Brooklyn, New York for their extremely poor care of former police officer Abraham Ticknor. Abraham Ticknor was a resident at the nursing home from the mid 1990s until his death in 2003. According to Ticknor's daughter, the center never treated Ticknor for bedsores, even putting a shoe on a foot ulcer. Other accusations of cruelty and abuse are also made. This is not the first time the Metropolitan Jewish Geriatric Center has been accused of poor care standards - it was fined $4000 by the Department of Health in 2001 for negligence relating to resident's bedsores.
