Dangerous Assisted Living Facilities Do Not Deserve State Funds
Instead of yanking funding from an assisted living facility after an elderly resident died from burns after being left in scalding tub water, the State of Florida imposed a relatively small fine. Later, when it was learned that a caregiver punched a mentally ill resident, at an ALF the State of Florida issued a warning, instead of stopping funding. Similar tales occur commonly in the assisted living facility and nursing home communities in Florida, and things seem to get worse every year.
