Who will stand up for the elderly?
Brian Lee, 39, now former-Director of the Florida Long-term Care Ombudsman Program, was abruptly terminated from his position of seven years by Governor Rick Scott, after requesting that the 677 nursing homes across the State of Florida reveal detailed information on ownership stakes. The information he requested is protected under the new Federal Healthcare legislation, which was designed to show greater transparency and accountability.
As Lee continued to insist on transparency, his relationship between the directors and CEO’s grew increasing volatile. What is the head of these nursing/retirement home industries hiding?

“It’s good to be reminded that “It always look easy when someone else is doing it!
