Lebanese family sues nursing home in America over abuse caught on camera

A video that was recorded on a hidden camera shows an elderly Lebanese-American man being abused in a nursing home in Michigan. According to


, Hussein Younes was admitted to Autumnwood of Livonia in May 2015 to recover from abdominal surgery. A few weeks later, the wheelchair-bound patient started complaining to his children that he was being abused. Even though the nursing home reassured them, Hussein’s children noticed bruises and cuts on their father’s head. They set up a hidden camera in his room which recorded what their father was going through. The tapes show two nurses screaming at him, hitting him, and violently throwing him in his wheelchair. They were even using racial slurs. In December 2015, Hussein was removed from the facility. Autumnwood of Livonia conducted an investigation and fired the employees who were involved in the incident. The family filed a civil lawsuit in September 2016. His son Salim said that he is shedding light on what happened because what the family went through was unbearable. He also does not “advise anybody to put their family over there.”
