Professor Nina Kohn Discusses Nursing Home Death Investigation with Syracuse Post-Standard
In the recent Syracuse Post-Standard article, “NY Attorney General probes mysterious death at Van Duyn. Will there be criminal charges?”, Kohn Kohn said nursing home neglect and abuse cases rarely result in criminal prosecution, in part, because society tends to tolerate unnecessary pain and suffering among this population.
“But this ignores the fact that how we die matters,” she said. “And that how nursing home residents spend their last years, months and days matters. And that these are basic human rights issues.”
