Een paar citaten:
?Regulators repeatedly warned the home that staff levels were below mandatory minimums. When regulators visited, they found malfunctioning fire doors, unhygienic kitchens and a resident using a leg brace that was broken. ?They?ve created a hellhole,? said Vivian Hewitt, who sued Habana in 2004 when her mother died after a large bedsore became infected by feces.?

?Federal and state regulators also said in interviews that such cuts help explain why serious quality-of-care deficiencies ? like moldy food and the restraining of residents for long periods or the administration of wrong medications ? rose at every large nursing home chain after it was acquired by a private investment group from 2000 to 2006, even as citations declined at many other homes and chains.?

?Last year, Formation sold Habana and 185 other facilities to General Electric for $1.4 billion. A prominent nursing home industry analyst, Steve Monroe, estimates that Formation?s and its co-investors? gains from that sale were more than $500 million in just four years. Formation declined to comment on that figure.?
Dat is meer dan 30% winst.
