Medicaid Patients With Suspected Abuse and Neglect Were Not Investigated and Reported Immediately.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Medicaid patients in Maine who had critical incidents involving neglect, exploitation, or abuse were not investigated and reported immediately, according to an audit from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Auditors conducted the investigation after it was discovered there were cases of abuse and fatalities of patients with developmental disabilities in group homes.
The great moments of single payer health care.
