Arizona healthcare facility will remain open after state steps in

A day after Hacienda HealthCare announced it would close its intermediate care facility where an incapacitated patient was raped, the state has stepped in to keep it open. The state cited ’the high medical risks associated with transferring these patients’ as a reason in doing so, suggesting bringing in a third-party manager or allowing the state health department to assume licensing authority.

This is corporate think damage control. They will sell the facility to some shell company, change the name and pay lip service to "policies" that on the surface address the problem. The real problem is that these faclities are seriously understaffed, who are pitifully underpaid, poorly supervised and often under-trained for the job they are tasked to perform. A simple begining step would be cameras in the hallways and corridors. At least the coming and goings could be checked.

Why do we have some saying they are shutting down and others are saying they are staying open with government involvement?

Um, the headlines are saying different things. Is it shutting down or staying open?

What sort of people get hired to work in these places? Not too long ago 2 women (caregivers) were charged with murder for letting a man die right in front of them while they laughed. They were of the same persuasion.
