This might make it more costly for the nursing homes to understaff and abuse patients–problems we know are rampant with beatings and sexual abuse, dehydration and bed sores.
The comments are interesting too. One commentator said that there is no reason to increase the cost of keeping an elder because the elder is going to die anyway in the nursing home and lack of quality care will not change the outcome. (Comment of a psychopath)
Interesting that they don’t consider the cost in terms of litigation when there is rampant abuse and neglect into that factor, and the other factor of people are there to do a job correctly, and also there is the factor that parents and grandparents deserve kindness and compassion at end of live and not squalor and abuse.
