    Those perpetrators should be fired. But they aare protected from the Union. They have no business taking care of the elderly.

    this should be investigated as a criminal investigation and the offenders charged with elder abuse, endangering the life of..., attempted manslaughter, etc as is deemed appropriate.
    And anyone who tries to cover for them should lose their liscence to work in healthcare forever.

    the id switching is quickly solved....the alf my mother is in...takes pictures of the patients and puts them in their med files...plus the staff knows the patients ..the band switching is merely an annoyance

    That could never happen in our state. Were they caregivers?
    With my license, if I walked out I could get charged with abandonment.

    So what you are saying is that management of these places were so distanced from the patients that they had no idea who their patients were?

    I don't think he was, but that can be the case sometimes.
