Description

Philadelphia Inquirer reveals dialysis patients who rely on the federal government's kidney program are being subjected to unclean conditions and low quality care, which have resulted in the patients contracting infections and illnesses; finds these poor and jobless patients are afraid to speak out; looks through thousands of pages of government documents that detail financial irregularities in some for-profit clinics, as well as questionable medial practices in all clinics; shows the government knew of the problems but took no action.
