Description

"Resident #1" is the alias for a Providence nursing home patient whose health rapidly deteriorated due to repeated neglect. Levitz looks at how the Rhode Island Health Department allowed this patient and many others like her to slip through the cracks, jeopardizing their safety. Levitz reports on how the system that is supposed to protect these people rarely closes poorly performing homes, and even waives fines, keeping public in the dark about how these homes measure up.
