Description

An eight-month investigation by WUFT-TV into the Florida nursing home system depicts the failure of social workers, officials and legislators to provide reliable help to patients. The report reveals that at the Oaks Residential and Rehabilitation Center "people were screaming for help and nobody would help them." The story sheds light on the death of a patient who spent a few months at the home, and ended up with "multiple infections and ulcerations," listed in the autopsy records as the cause of death.
