More Legal Trouble for Elder Care Operator

The complaint charges that the corporate officers, directors and managers of the company and of the homes deliberately keep the budgets so tight that appropriate staffing cannot be provided so that residents do not receive the care they need and should be getting, and for which they are paying.
