OK, That’s Enough Abusing Old People

Apparently, Gov. Scott’s finally moving on this issue. Even though he hates regulation and it’ll totally bankrupt the state. OK that’s harsh. Legitimate credit where its due and here it seems Scott’s earned some modicum of praise.

Perhaps you’ve already read or heard all the coverage about the series of abuses in assisted living facilities. Like this, this or this, this or this, maybe.

Aggressive regulatory enforcement and frequent inspections are the only way to keep the state’s assisted living facilities operating at legal standards. Florida was once held up as a model in its protections against the abuse of the elderly and disabled at these facilities. It can be so again, if Scott continues to make it a priority.
