Roughly 25,000 patients were exposed to increasing health risks at an underfunded nursing-home chain, an investigation from The Washington Post found. 

The ManorCare chain was owned by Carlyle Group, one of the wealthiest private-equity firms in the world. ManorCare had struggled financially until it filed for bankruptcy in March, and in the previous five years, the number of health-code violations rose 26 percent. Citations included medication errors, not providing proper care for patients in need of special services such as injections, and not assisting patients with eating and personal hygiene.
