Florida has stopped most inspections and complaint investigations in nursing homes, health clinics and other health-care facilities. Now the inspectors only go out if there’s case that’s life and death. Congress stopped paying the Medicare agency, so that agency stopped paying the states.
Austin Curry, director of Elder Care Advocacy of Florida, was appalled when he found out.
“This is a travesty, above all things to curtail is nursing home inspections”, Curry said.
