    Who set up this shake-and-bake operation in the nursing home? I'm guessing a relative of one of the nurses or CNAs.

    Next new thread... "I was busted for cooking meth at a nursing home. Do you think I can still get a license in Ohio? It wasn't my fault. I had to do it because they didn't pay me enough! Oh, and the hours were better"

    Am I surprised? No. It takes something really big to surprise me.

    the fellow that died was 31 and i was lead by the article to believe he was a resident. Should i assume the guy that died was probably the owner of the meth lab? So assuming he set up a meth lab in his own room will this spring up a new assessment and safety check?

    Trip hazards clears? check
    Bed in a low position? check
    call bell in reach? yup
    any meth labs in the closet? nope, room is set and safe!

    It will be interesting to find out who's meth set up it was. Was is an employee who hid it in a room of a non alert patient? I find it VERY hard to believe a resident did this.

    No stuff, I't will likely involve more "paper-works" (typing on the screen) for us.
