Obama care at its finest, charge these worthless overpaid money grubbing bed pan pushers with manslaughter, charge then with theft for accepting Medicare and not providing services, charge then with violating her civil rights. a corporation exists at the courtesy of the people, they want to donate to campaigns and have lobbyists, but i have yet to see one executed for murder start with this one. Take that putrid little pimp sucking on medicare out of his posh little office and give him some jail time with Bubba the neighborhood deviate

These company look for loyal soldier employees like the 'this is not my job' nurse. Brookdale is the problem.
