Wife says nursing home no place for aggressive husband

Woman speaks out after W5 documentary reveals 10,000 incidents of patient-on-patient abuse

Hugh Adami, The Ottawa Citizen

Doris Andrew is embarrassed by her story, but she says it needs to be told because she’s fearful for her husband, who has dementia, and the people he might hurt once he’s sent to a long-term care facility. Doris believes that the system is failing, and that aggressive individuals, such as her husband, should not be mixed in at nursing homes with passive patients.
