Description

An accidental death at a Snohomish County nursing home looked like a simple case of neglect, but on closer inspection it highlighted deeper problems with elder care in Washington state. The company that owns the home was the most-fined care provider in Washington and also among the nation's worst for care deficiencies. At the same time, state regulators were cutting subsidies for the home, while demanding higher performance.
