Volunteered and worked in a few actually, very rarely saw people under 60. It was a few years ago and perhaps it was regional but YMMV

Nursing homes aren't just for 80 year olds. Residents also include para/quadriplegics, people with advanced MS or Parkinson's, or just people who need some level of nursing care, but aren't sick or debilitated enough to need to be in an LTAC (long-term acute care hospital). 30 year olds can be nursing home residents.

This is correct. My grandmother went into one when she was 77.

$200 tax, and hire a lawyer to write a trust, finger prints, & CLEO signature. Also limited to all armrests produced before 1986, unless you pay $3000/year for a special armrest manufacturing tax.

Many people confuse the difference between a group home, assisted living, long term care, rehab, and an LTACH.

A "nursing home" is a laypersons term that can mean in all reality all of the above.

Most "nursing homes" these days try to go after a variety of patients/residents so that they can diversify so that they are not dependent on a single level of care. Most facilities will have an assisted living portion where the residents live independently but a caregiver may come around and clean the house, hand out their medications, and generally check on them once a day but not provide direct patient care.

Once that person needs more care they can be moved into the long term care facility where they recieve daily direct patient care (this is the traditional nursing home).

Many times a nursing home will have a rehab wing where they will take patients who just recieved surgery or need IV antibiotics or something, their time is limited in the facility and generally require physical therapy. This is where the younger patients can be seen.

Some facilities will specialize in certain patients. Several local facilities specialize in kids. They have a lot of babies and small children who have been in car accidents, near drownings, and who are mentally disabled. I used to work in a facility that specialized in patients who were on vents, there were a lot of car accidents, shooting, stabbing, and beating victims in there. Most were yound (sub 40).

No borrowing one either, until yours is approved and actually arrives.

With enough effort, you could beat someone to death with a toilet lid. You can't remove or tie down everything in a nursing home you can beat someone with. That would be called prison.

This, it is remarkable how little it takes to kills someone.

Also, the victims were not the healthiest people to start with. The could have been on anticoagulants, had head surgery, etc etc.

I just had a patient who was 54 (chemo/low platelet) who didn't know where he banded his head, just woke up with a lump. He called and let us know but couldn't make it to his Oncologist until the next day (refused to go to the ED). He never woke up the next day.

Possible but you would be surprised at how little the judgements/settlements are from cases like this. When they figure damages they look at potential life earnings as a big factor, if the victims did not have much of a potential (which one certainly did not) then the outcome will be rather small.

To highlight this, my mother was involved in a case where a nurse gave a lethal dose of the wrong drug to an 80 year old. The potential judgement was so small that the case was settled out for something like $5k because that was about all the family could have got.

It's rather ironic, because if the nursing home were to try and confine the killer in this case (before he killed anyone), half of GD would be up in arms about how his rights were violated.

He's spreading it around and not picking on anyone in particular. He had an Ok day (or whatever) between NY and TX, I think. I'm curious what the next one will be. CA is just too easy.
