Nursing home neglect lawsuit: Greed is not good, patients suffer p2

We are talking about a lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Attorney General's office. The suit accuses a multi-state nursing home chain of deliberately understaffing its care facilities in order to maximize its profits. That skewed staff-to-patient ratio is responsible for patients not receiving the appropriate care, according to the complaint.

Nursing home neglect lawsuit: Greed is not good, patients suffer

The 10th largest nursing home chain in the U.S. is under fire in a federal lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Attorney General's office. The complaint takes the unusual approach -- one that the attorney general hopes will be easier to prove -- that the organization itself, rather than the workers, is responsible for lapses in patient care.

Forget the misfits - why isn't there an Island of Dangerous Toys?

Retailers are really stuck between a rock and an Abominable Snow Monster at Christmas. First, there are the risks of injuries during a Black Friday rush -- even plush toys can be dangerous if they fall on an unsuspecting shopper or trip a clerk hurrying to clean up a mess in aisle five.

A missed diagnosis, especially for a major health issue such as diabetes, can lead to a costly medical malpractice claim.
