Facility evicts and abandons resident for failing to pay

This is an incredible article.  They should be arrested for leaving a vulnerable adult in this condition.

A northeast Nebraska care center has been fined for leaving an elderly resident alone and unattended.

A report, done by the state department of Health and Human Services, says Golden Living Center, in O’Neill, Nebraska, discharged a resident because the individual’s family couldn’t pay for the care.

The report says the facility contacted their family… and subsequently transported the resident to their family’s home. But, the report says, when they got there, the family refused to accept the resident… saying they did not have the requisite expertise to care for their loved one.

The facility’s representative placed the resident in a lawn chair, under a tree, at the family’s home… and left.

The state fined Golden Living Center a measly $3,000 and placed the facility on probation for six months.
