This investigation uncovers a lot of problems that occur in assisted - living homes. Caregivers are sometimes not well trained, and they don't know how to do basic life-saving techniques like CPR or the Heimlich Maneuver. Other documented cases show that caregivers sometimes confuse residents' medicine. Assisted living facilities are often so short-staffed that applicants are hired immediately without a background check or proper training. The article also highlights some positive aspects of the better assisted-living communities in the country.
