Summary WCCO-TV (Minneapolis) "exposed abuses in the home health care industry in Minnesota. The I-Team found elderly, sick and handicapped people -- isolated in their homes -- being cared for by unqualified, untrained and unsupervised workers. And the I-Team found that, in spite of the obvious problems, Minnesota had no licensing for home health agencies, no qualification standards for home health aides, and no field inspections to monitor the quality of patient care."
