With the Largest-Ever Buyout of a National Nursing Home Chain Pending ... New York Times Exposes Harm to Seniors After Private Equity Buyouts of Nursing Homes
Date:9/25/2007

ichigan homes were cited for a total of 268 federal health standards violations. Furthermore, over the past three survey cycles, the number of federal health standards violations cited at Manor Care nursing homes in Michigan has more than doubled.(i)

These violations include:

-- The daughter of a resident who was totally dependent on facility staff

for her care and could not speak found ants crawling on her mother's

mouth. Facility staff agreed that there was a problem with ants on the

unit where the resident lived. (ii)

-- Residents were given unnecessary physical restraints. (iii)

-- A resident had an aide refuse to change her soiled adult brief; after

sitting in feces for 5 hours, the resident called the police to report

resident abuse. (iv)

-- A resident developed a necrotic pressure sore. (v)

The takeover will result in a windfall of as much as $254 million for top ManorCare executives and directors, including as much as $186 million for Manor Care CEO Paul Ormond. Carlyle stands to reap fees on the deal that could total hundreds of millions of dollars. The CEO windfalls, fees, and the high level of debt that Manor Care will face as a result of the buyout raise serious concerns for nursing home staff trying to provide quality care, the taxpayers who money helps fund Manor Care's operations and most importantly for Manor Care residents.

On September 19, the nation's largest healthcare workers union, SEIU, launched a new nationwide effort calling on Carlyle to put patient care above CEO profits in the Manor Care takeover.

Seeking to ensure quality care and safe staffing at Manor Care-run homes after the buyout is completed, SEIU is calling on the Carlyle Group to:

1. Ensure that its nursing homes are in compliance with federal minimum

resident care regulations at all times.

2. Ensure that its nursing homes are staffed at levels recommended by the'/>"/>
