Rome, August 5 - Late-night police raids at nursing
homes across Italy found sloppy care, abuse, and use of expired
medication, authorities said Monday.
Police searched 100 nursing homes on the orders of Health
Minister Beatrice Lorenzin, including 31 homes for the elderly
and disabled people in the north, 30 in the Italy's central
region, and 39 in the south.
In and around the city of Catania in Sicily, authorities
found over-crowding among seniors as old as 102 years.
Police have charged 19 people for various violations
including neglect and abandonment, and seized about 400,000 euro
in goods as well as expired medications.
Police found some homes did not hire qualified health care
providers, did not meet sanitary codes or provide adequate
facilities for the disabled, lacked air conditioning and window
screens against insects, and some used soiled gloves when
treating patients.
