Bush Administration Last-Minute Regulation to Hurt Nursing Home Residents

I mentioned this in an earlier post. It seems like a minor matter, but could deal a severe blow to anyone pursuing a case for nursing home abuse or neglect.

In a blog on the Mother Jones website David Corn writes, “That Bush-Cheney legacy is going to be a mean one for years. And there’s likely to be a drip-drip-drip disclosure of all the damage done.” He writes, “for instance on Tuesday there was news that the Bush administration screwed nursing homes residents.” Corn quoted part of a Bloomberg News story that said, “The Bush administration shut off a source of information last fall about abuse and neglect in long- term care facilities that people suing nursing homes consider crucial to their cases” and “the change that affects the $144 billion nursing-home industry occurred with no public notice or attention, perhaps because of the array of last-minute rules that President George W. Bush’s appointees rushed out before leaving Washington last month.” In a segment of Countdown with Keith Olbermann, MSNBC (2/26) also covers the story.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
