Description

Evidence of substandard care at a chain of rest homes is represented in this story. It is noted that many of the problems stemmed from cutting costs and accepting questionable residents in an effort to achieve a profit in excess of 40 percent. It is also pointed out that the problems were not isolated examples, but rather an indication of the problems that could be found in rest homes throughout North Carolina. The stories show that the state's regulations were terribly outdated for an industry that is changing rapidly and becoming increasingly corporate.
