Florida’s Department of Elder Affairs commenced “Negotiated Rulemaking” today in the wake of the Miami Herald’s award-winning investigative series that uncovered rampant abuse and neglect in far too many of Florida’s assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, this “rulemaking” is turning out to be nothing more than a mockery toward residents and their rights.
Only in the nursing home industry would someone pay exorbitant amounts of money for businesses that supposedly bleed millions of dollars in losses. According to a Senior Housing News report, two non-profit nursing homes for sale in New York are each losing gobs of money due to “reimbursement cuts” and “extremely onerous union contracts.”
Congratulations to Michael Sallah, Carol Marbin Miller, and Rob Barry for being recognized with the prestigious “National Headliner” award.

It’s not every day, that I, in particular, see eye-to-eye with nursing home industry representatives, but on this issue, I do.
