Pennsylvania OIG Finds Failures In How Agencies Investigate Elder Abuse Complaints.

January 9, 2019

The AP (1/9, Levy) reports the Office of State Inspector General of Pennsylvania “is criticizing how county-level agencies investigate thousands of complaints they receive about elder abuse and how the state ensures complaints are investigated adequately.” In a recent report, the office identified “failures by some county-level agencies to properly investigate complaints.” However, the Pennsylvania Association of Area Agencies on Aging “said those organizations and the Department of Aging ‘have made significant improvements’ since the inspector general’s investigation began.”
