Just how big is this nightmare? Seems like every time they get busted for killing or hurting residents, milking the government, falysifing charts and lying under oath, they open or renovate a facility. I can't understand how people would trust this phony, crooked bunch with someone they love. Check out Life Care Centers of America before you commit to anything. Get on the internet and research. You might change your mind.
In respect to oldnurse's comments. Life Care is premier alright, that's why the owner lives in a 25 million dollar home and is the 16th richest man in Tn. Yet, he will not even come close to adequate staffing of nursing aides or nurses. Forget doctors. The truth is coming out slowly but surely and it is time for our people to take blinders off. It's all about the money for sure. His money.
In my opinion bearbait is spot on. The reality is the state has allowed this crime to go on for years. I believe if medicare had not got involved neither would have the state. Hopefully our people will realize the horror stories they have heard for decades are true. I know first hand. My mother died from negligence at Life Care Center of Cleveland and I proved it. During an 11 day trial I was stunned at the findings. I have never been so disgusted and hurt. There has got to be a way to expose this throughout the country.
If the Gov gives the ok for Ginger you can bet there is a conspiracy. His incredibly bad decision of appointing her as circuit court judge backfired. Knowing Ginger, she might be holding an ace in the hole. Interesting stuff here.
Ginger is a phony. She will appear to be a true caring democrat but when it comes to nut crunching time will change sides. A true political hack without intelligence, only greed. Ain't it about time to back people with integrity.
Ginger's resume reads like a den mother but believe me there is another side. She showed no spirit or decency in the high profile case of Matthews vs Life Care Center of Cleveland. Under pressure she folded and went against her on verdict; throwing out the case stating she was the 13th juror. It was the worst decision of a circuit court judge that I have ever seen and I have been around for a while. If she falls apart under local pressure think about what she will do under heavy fire. She should raise her family, take care of the farm and stay very far away from true leadership. Believe me. She is not a leader.
I hope people will understand the true horrors of this story. Think about the violations. These are not mistakes; these violations are Life Care's policy. Falisfying records and charts of these poor people is a felony of the worst kind. Life Care will never apologize to the families nor will they man up and provide better care. After all, it has been going on for over 3 decades, why stop now.
Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end for Life Care Centers of America. They continue to under staff, lie under oath, rip off government programs and worse, provide inadequate care to residents. I feel so bad for the residents having to be moved but in the long run, they will be better off.
It is so sad what our people endure from these "for profit" nursing homes. I know first hand. My mother died from treatment or lack of at Life Care Center of Cleveland. I proved my point during a 12 person, 11 day trial in Forrest Preston's backyard. Life Care was guilty of over 30 plus counts ranging from pencil whipping my mother's charts to ordering mom's aide not to hydrate her because of staffing shortage. I won the case but it was thrown out by an appointed judge; Ginger Wilson Buchanan. If the good people of this country really knew what goes on in these horror shops they would be stunned. Not only does Life Care rip off the government they could not care less about the residents. I am not talking about the under paid, over worked, understaffed aides. I am talking about the 16th richest man in Tn.
