The majority of long term care facilities for the elderly, people recovering from life-altering physical conditions (rehabilitative care/recovery/convalescence, and “nursing homes” are owned by physicians, attorneys, and hedge funds (who see the aging baby boomer population as potential sources of profits). Not surprising that the orange butt nut is exerting his malevolent “power” to protect these entities from legal actions against them that just might lower their profit margins. Malfeasance and elder abuse in these facilities is not uncommon, especially when one considers that the vast majority of the staff are horribly overworked and underpaid…not unlike our childcare workers. From the cradle to the grave, humans are commodified by the wealthy, corporatists, and anyone trying to make a fast, dirty buck.
And on the other hand the emperor and GOP Congress persist in cutting Medicare, SS, and Medicaid. Schizophrenic at best, psychopathic at worst.
Where does a vast majority of the payments for the care come from: Medicaid.
