Florida State Senator Calls for Further Investigation

A Florida state senator Nan Rich is calling for a state investigation into deaths at Assisted Living Facilities, a move inspired by the investigative report published by the Miami Herald. The report detailed some horrendous incidents of abuse and neglect and death in Florida nursing homes. Rich aims discover the state regulators played in these cases.  “I think a lot of these things happen when nobody is watching,” she told WUSF.  And she would like to have the state inspect the assisted living facilities once a year instead of every two years as it now.
