CBS News investigates the treatment of the elderly in nursing homes. They focus their investigation on the neglect of residents of the homes. "To get a handle on the national scope of both problems - abuse and neglect - we began by conducting a comprehensive analysis of federal nursing home inspection reports. We determined from that analysis that much of the abuse comes from employees with criminal backgrounds or histories of abuse who slip through the system."
