Description

A 30 minute KVUE Defenders investigation uncovered a dramatic rise in abuse inside Texas nursing homes and a state agency allowing it to happen. While facilities receive millions from taxpayers, investigative reporter Andy Pierrotti found regulations hamstring the state's ability to hold nursing homes accountable for continued neglect. The investigation also exposed thousands of medication errors, including nursing homes over-prescribing antipsychotic drugs more than any other state, increasing patients' risk of death. https://vimeo.com/130982371
