A new law in NJ to help protect patients in assisted care:

Starting this fall, elderly residents in New Jersey’s nursing homes and other long-term care facilities could benefit from additional protections designed to ensure law enforcement is looped into possible criminal abuse cases right from the start.
Gov. Chris Christie signed a bipartisan bill Monday that requires workers at the more than 900 state-regulated facilities that house senior citizens to promptly contact police if they suspect abuse, exploitation, or other criminal harm involving any of the elderly residents. It also holds both the worker and the facility responsible if this call isn’t made within a certain timeframe.

Too bad this law is not nation-wide, imo.
