How to document suspected nursing home abuse

Nursing homes and elder care facilities play an important role in society. After all, the staff at these places steps in to meet the needs of elderly patients. Regardless of how much research you do when choosing a nursing home for your aging mother or father, though, you may not be able to avoid some level of nursing home abuse. 

Nursing home fines down under Trump administration

Under the Trump administration, nursing homes in Mississippi and across the U.S. receive lower fines for committing violations that endanger or injure residents than they did under the Obama administration. The fine reduction is the result of the Trump administration bending to nursing home industry pressure to change the way fines are assessed.

Losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time can have serious consequences for drivers in Mississippi and across the US.

Despite this, Congress has failed to pass legislation requiring the use of the technologies. As a result, truck safety advocates are pushing President Donald Trump to step in and get the job done.
