The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
The Doctors weigh in on an Ohio woman, who is accused of giving a lap dance to a 100-year-old man with dementia.
Footage shows the accused woman straddling the man's leg and writhing on his leg. She faces a charge of gross sexual imposition, and the possibility of other charges, according to KFOR. She is currently free on bond.
"Sadly, this probably occurs more commonly than we want to acknowledge," ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says. "What can happen, in a poorly run nursing home where there is not great oversight, is that people feel like they can get away with it."
The Doctors note that elder abuse is not limited to just nursing homes. Neurologist Dr. Benjamin Emanuel explains the people mostly likely to commit elder abuse are the ones charged with caring for these people and many times these are family members. Like the child protective services, Dr. Emanuel says there is also adult protective services to help deal with these issues. He goes on to say elder abuse is, in fact, more common than we might suspect and it often goes unreported.
The Commons of Providence, the senior living facility where the alleged abuse occurred, released a statement to The Doctors, "We are cooperating with local police who are handling the investigation and we will not comment further about the ongoing investigation."
