Nursing Home Owners Had Done Time

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

The Senate Rules Committee will consider a measure Monday afternoon that would loosen government oversight of nursing home regulations and make it more difficult to sue owners and investors, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports. But some argue that regulations aren’t strict enough as it is, as shown by the case of two men who did prison time for health fraud in New York, then came to Florida and opened a skilled nursing facility in Florida where a resident died, the Herald-Tribune reports.  


Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
