The normal number of people for one caregiver to look after in a properly staffed rest home or nursing home is between 5 and 10. Just to put into perspective how fucking insane it is for a single caregiver to be tasked with 22 people.

I’m working to become a CNA so I can work through college as I already have a lot of the skills from a high school class I’m in- I spend 8 hrs a week shadowing nurses and CNAs,,, and let me tell you- these men and women are heroes. Especially now with long hours, understaffing, difficult patients and families, sad stories all around u all day. That’s not even mentioning the immense physical toll it takes to be on ur feet all day, lifting and moving patients, and rushing around to keep everyone safe. We need to work to ensure that all facilities for the vulnerable are safe, comfortable. And we need to make sure those that take care of our residents are qualified and have the proper etiquette, as elder abuse in mismanaged facilities is FAR too rampant and underreported. CNAs and nurses are incredible people, and they deserve proper wages to ensure that their sacrifice is rewarded.

I have to say John... You've been in the USA for a few years now, and you haven't caught on to a very big point. Time and again, population after population, you've asked the country to show it cares. You've also left off the rest of the question, does the country care about X people more, or money more? The USA, money is the ONLY thing that matters, that rules, and that enacts change. If you can make "caring" for people profitable, you can create a new industry. Aside from mega churches. Private hospitals. Schools, colleges, sports leagues, assisted care, banking and investment... Actually... I'm not sure there's a market left to corner. :/

The issue is caring for people IS profitable... for society, but often not as much for the individually powerful entities within it as just being parasites.

I worked as a CNA at two different BrookDale facilities. Honestly it was one of the better alfs and nursing homes I worked at. One place would run out of diapers(they called them briefs) or gloves on a daily basis. I’d complain about it and the response I got was because I am a make I just need to suck it up and deal with it. One time a resident’s son came in with a gun and forgot to take the gun home. This might not result in a lot of concerns from the reader but anyone who has worked with folks that have Alzheimer’s or some sort of dimension knows some folks mistake certain things for others, therefore a well meaning resident inflicted with this awful ailment may very well try to distribute pez candy not realizing that this is gun they are holding. Another time at a non-brookdale facility they had someone brought in just to be arrested an hour later. Reason? Apparently they had been admitting themselves into nursing homes so that they can go rape a bunch of residents. You realize how understaffed these facilities have to be in order for that jerk to be successful in his evil goal? That same one had a resident that started a small fire in the hallway. Luckily thought we were able to put it out. This other time a CNA, who was a friend of mine, was asked to get bleach from the shed to clean off a bed. She went to the shed, which wasn’t air conditioned and had poor ventilation. The bleach exploded into her eyes, the fire department was called and they cleaned out her eyes and then fined the facility. The facility suspended the CNA without pay, despite that she was following directions, WHILE DANGEROUSLY UNDERSTAFFED! The same facility had a resident with HIV and refused to let the CNAs know because that might alter the care “that’s none of their business they are just $9.50 employees anyway.” This was mid 2010s. And employees were already getting seriously ill multiple times a year. Many times without health insurance due to needing to work more hours. (CLEARLY NOT SAFE FOR THE RESIDENT either!) This does a number on you when “your goal is to keep the residents safe.” Rings loudly in your head because you take your responsibility seriously. Often, and the more I study people the more I think this is a control thing, we’d be told, “there is a complaint against you and we are doing an investigation if it turns out you are fine you get paid but you aren’t going to be able to call out even if you are sick. If staff had a Union that legitimately looked out for them they could easily tell potential residents and their family, “hey this is a great place, this is a terrible place, if you love your husband you will look at one of these facilities that I just applied to work at. CNAs and Nurses tend to gravitate towards facilities that give good care to their residents, they got into the field because they wanted to give care but when so much of your job is trying to get a computer fixed because of a glitch in the system where you chart what type of care you did... I mean it doesn’t take a genius to know that takes away time that could and should be spent with residents. Guess which one is more likely to result in disciplinary actions. Oh also this may go without saying but if you want to put your loved one in a facility what you should do is volunteer at the facility first, get to know the staff and befriend them then ask them after you’ve built up rapport over a number of weeks or months. The week after I left brookdale one of the CNAs (one I complained about and the one in charge of training other CNAs was caught with a resident’s cock in his mouth). The weeks leading up to that one of my resident’s wives was complaining to me that off my shift her husband was getting neglected and staff refused to take care of Him when he soiled himself and he seems to fall every time she left since moving him to the more intense care of this nursing home. I told her about another nursing home that all the CNAs and nurses are trying to get working there and they are supposed to be a great place to work. There is a common trend where CNAs want to work is the Nursing homes that don’t overload their staff, and take care of their residents. When we have to answer questions like “why was my dad denied a breakfast this morning before your shift started?” See we didn’t go for school to pick up the slack of our superiors. CNAs and nurses honestly need to study how to go on a strike properly because that maybe the only way that these nursing homes are going to tighten up.

My brother has pretty severe disablilities. My parents are concerned that when they pass, my brother will be a burden on the remaining children, and we might have to put in him in a long term facility. Either because of finances or because we wont be able to care for him ourselves. The conditions of these places terrify my parents so much that I know my dad works himself to an early grave just so they can leave money behind for him, so he doesn't have to go to a state run facitity. It hurts to think about the pain this causes my parents. It also hurts to think about my incredibly vulnerable brother being stuck in a place like that.

The problem with these homes is not that it is the care givers or employees fault. It is that it is a BUSINESS made and designed to be FOR PROFIT. It's like having a For Profit Hospital. Companies want to profit as much as they can and keep there shareholders happy while the residents and staff are the ones who suffer the most.

It doesn't help that you have insurance companies like Humana who scam the elderly out of their Medicare and replace it with managed care that when they actually need rehab to go home they cannot use at all. It is one of the most fucked up things about LTC. Insurance companies preying on the naïve conning them into thinking they are saving money without giving up anything, but actually replacing their Medicare coverage with nothing.

I do worry, though, how a pivot to community based care will effect the growing number of people basically having to structure their entire lives around elderly parents to the detriment of their own health and well-being. I'm disabled myself, mentally ill and arthritic, and I'm being pushed to break my body down taking care of abusive parents who still treat me like shit to this day. I can't send them to a home or an ALF for all the reasons listed, but frankly being paid to take care of them wouldn't make having to do it go down any easier.

We had to pull $10,000 from my wifes 401k to hire an Elder Care lawyer. Her father was in one of the better ones and sadly that saying much. This was to handle the medicaid part which long term insurance said we had to obtain and they would cover the rest. Medicare was looking to cover up to 7500 a month, where the long term insurance would cover the 2500 rest. Then covid hit and that claimed him. 'Murica. I have a feeling they sped up some older folks passing to clear beds because they had a waiting list. Also, many states say places can not kick out residents unless they have a place to go to take care of them, but you can be responsible for expenses.

I volunteered at a nursing home (with a lot of disabled residents) for a bit during middle school, and I want to cry imagining any of the residents in bad care. Many of them often got confused and had a few issues, but they were lovely people and deserve to live in a good environment that can cater to their needs. The staff should also be payed lots of money since while I don't regret working there, it could be a bit mentally tolling and I can't imagine doing the more difficult parts of the job EVERY DAY, especially since some of the residents would get into fights. Generally, nursing homes deserve better, both for the workers and the residents.

Non-Scientist, German leader today, KURZGESAGT, publishes endless science online booklets based on her "German Love'', further deepens emptiness. "No-need to be scientist" to replace scientists, some of her ONE-LINE followers claim, yet, CAN'T WRITE MORE THAN A LINE, NOR READ A FEW, WHILE TAINTING THIS CIVILIZATION. Same trend. A highly criticized, US Pandemic-Politician-Czar, a Non-PhD-Scientist?, is conducting, with a superior smile, 590,110 Americans Deaths & consulting India about its 213,997 runaway Deaths [6]. 20-30% of new CORONA Variants slip through border controls [7], while some Governments face today Relocating some populations to VIRUS-FREE domestic & international locations, as greatest life-or-death dilemma in history.

I’ve worked in elder care in Canada. It is just as bad. Public not-for-profit facilities are just as bad. People are just dumped off by their families and there isn’t enough staff. Our regulations are super lax. IMO families need to be caring for their loved ones as long as possible, and then go to hospice where there is larger staffing and regulation. Peoples don’t care enough about the elderly.

It should be a law that it is required to have a nursing staff of four to six people per twenty residents at a long term facility at all times.

The owners keep most of the money for themselves, just like all those greedy corporate executives out there. Why? Because they can, and there's no rules against it. It's brutal and awful and will never change.

Why I offered to offer taking care of my grandparents when I came home to stay for a bit, so they could spend time with the great grand kids... The other issue is how little some people of that older generation lack respect for the younger generation, and still want to act like they are the parents... not the great grandparents... I say this from the perspective of a mother; who is constantly told by them as they are glued to the news how changing anything with the problems in the world is impossible, and any work done in the community is a waste of my time... Old people can be extremly difficult to care for sometimes.

My other grandmother however, was a saint with a heart of gold. She was poor but was surrounded by family and a community who loved her in her final days. That to me now feels like a special treasure... Love matters so much.

The reason people walk off is while the doors have alarms, they are NEVER LOCKED which always baffled me. As someone who worked in a few care homes, both high class and ghetto, you always get a MINIMUM of 10 patients and usually at least half if not all are incontinent and a good portion are total care, meaning you need a minimum of 2 workers to perform and care. I worked in one care home on a unit of 31 patients, only 3 were cognitive. Every one was incontinent and at least 10 were feeders. Shifts there were 12hrs and we were always understaffed. This was last May too btw so covid was just starting. I worked the recovery hall one shift with about 20 patients by myself for 13hrs. I stayed an extra 2hr to help the night aide cause she was gonna be by herself. And very few care homes have memory units. Even the one that had a nice one, bumped a dementia patient to a main hall cause of medicare/Medicaid BS and that hall was a heavy hall, it had 5 total care patients alone and never had less than 14 patients on the hall. Because they count how many beds are full/available not how much care a patient will need. I am so glad I work at a hospital now because at least my patients get better and go home.

Anybody arbitrarily capping a list at 88 makes me twitchy. I'm 90% sure its coincidence, but the use of the number 88 is a known neo-Nazi code (the eight letter of the alphabet is H, so 88 is code for "Heil Hitler").

I worked as an RN in Long Term Care for about 3 years. I wouldn’t put my dog in the facility I worked at, we were so short staffed people did not get looked after as they should. 🇨🇦I’m hoping this pandemic has shown how badly our seniors are cared for and big changes come for the most vulnerable in our society. 🤞 I would go home feeling terrible and that is why I changed jobs. When I worked in the ER, people would drop off their family members because they couldn’t care for them at home anymore and the wait list to get into LTC was so long. That person would get sent to our Acute care floor and wait there until a LTC bed became available. This person would pay the hospital as if they were in LTC. The whole system needs to be over hauled and we need more LTC beds and more trained staff who will get paid better. It’s a nightmare considering we have the boomers getting to the age of needing LTC.

I'm an only child of a woman who also has 3 sisters who never had kids, despite them all marrying even twice 1/2 of the time. I often worry for them and also for myself if I think too far into the future , and also alzheimers is an issue genetically and my grandma and great grandma suffered from it when I was younger. It is sort of a mindfuck especially with an exponentially shrinking family .

Taxpayers continue to pay the costs of long term care nursing homes via Disability claims: staff in these 'homes' have some of the highest injury rates in the nation. Lifting passive weight all day, or sometimes combative people, does a lot of damage to a person's body and mind. Also, sexual assaults on the job are common and legal: there's no reporting system for assaults of workers, so when clients attack us, they are not dealt with then sent to other homes where they attack clients (Then it's a problem.)

I've written everyone in govt. about high death rate in long term care since 2010: no one cared. Also wrote MSM outlets for a decade: no one cared. They've ALWAYS DIED IN HIGH NUMBERS IN LONG TERM CARE & I've heard/seen people calling police to 'get help' often, which I've done a few times myself, but this field is headed by corrupt officials who Don't Care. They want the poor to die and end up with their assets & SSI: the expected life span of usa citizens is going down. The ARTIFICALLY high death rate in nursing homes that overuse psychotropic drugs so they can hire skeleton crew was used to justify largest bank bailout since 2008 (which I just learned WAS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY so the banks got us, Again.) Equity Owned nursing homes have as high a death rate as 'covid.' Also, it saves 90% of Medicare to simply keep people Home. Oregon, as many other states, prefers to destroy the Stay at Home program and get rid of workers (who make about $4/hr. & have less than 1 day off a month) in favor of federally funded nursing homes (more money for their state budgets & they can get rid of the elderly poor quicker that way.)

John Oliver, I watch your show quite frequently. I even re-watch them. Most likely because I'm clinically insane. (Jokes) As I have watched your show throughout the years, I have witnessed an evolution. Not of you but our society. Your comical dialogue on the human condition is not only detailed but very enjoyable. With that being said, I am distraught with the course the human race is plummeting. I do not need to explain to you what I am referring to, as you report on these subjects every Sunday your show is on. You do a very good job of informing us of what is actually happening as well as what we can do as individuals to NOT perpetuate the shit that is being peddled in this world by disingenuous greedy people. I am wanting to ask you this. What is it going to take for the human race to stop being such raging dickbags? When will the collective good out shine the shit show that are racist, greedy or just evil people. Is it a perception issue? Am I just not seeing the good anymore? Now, I know those are some deep questions, but I feel like you could do it justice. You have answered a lot tougher questions. I know this will probably fall into the cracks of the internet. But I would like to know what you think it will take for the human race to actually move forward in a better manner than we have been able to muster so far.
