Nursing home abuse often goes unreported to police

Kentucky families who rely on a nursing home facility to provide the daily care of a loved one may be interested to learn that about 25 percent of possible cases of abuse went unreported to police during 2015 and 2016. This is despite the fact that there is a federal law that requires all nursing homes to contact authorities immediately if physical or sexual abuse against a patient is thought to have occurred.

Mazda recalls over 79,000 vehicles over defective air bags

Kentucky motorists might have heard that Mazda is recalling 79,402 vehicles due to faulty Takata air bag inflators. The recall is part of a worldwide recall effort that involves 19 automakers and 100 million vehicles, including 2.7 million added by Takata in July.

Nursing homes may return to arbitration agreements

Those considering Kentucky nursing homes for the care of their loved ones may want to know about proposed rule change that could shield facilities from lawsuits. A prior rule allowed facilities that receive federal funding to use mandatory arbitration clauses in contracts; however, they could not demand consent to arbitration as a condition of admittance. The new rule proposed in July would allow the inclusion of pre-dispute arbitration clauses as a condition of serving patients and their families.

Automakers taking their time with massive airbag recall

Kentucky car owners whose vehicles are among the millions scheduled to be serviced for defective airbag inflators may have to wait longer than expected. According to a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Dec. 31 deadline to comply with the terms of the recall order on Takata airbags will not be met, which means that millions of drivers will continue to be at risk of serious injury and even death.
