Class-Action Suit Alleges Company Understaffed Nursing Homes, Violated Residents’ Rights.

September 29, 2022

USA Today (9/29, Penzenstadler, Fraser) reports a class-action lawsuit “claims an Illinois company chose profits over people by understaffing its nursing homes, leading to poor care that endangered residents.” On Tuesday, “11 unnamed residents of six nursing homes sued Alden Group and its business affiliates for damages related to alleged violations of residents’ rights to adequate care and deceptive business practices.” The White House “is preparing to use its executive authority to tighten industry regulations.” CMS is also “planning to issue new rules about mandatory minimum staffing in spring of 2023.”
