    really shocking that this happened there, eh?
    when i saw the headline, my first reaction was "how badly staffed was this nursing home?" i also wonder if the staff were in on it. maybe housekeeping, a cna, or a nurse set up the lab in a comatose patient's room.

    It said he was neither a resident nor an employee. Fell into the "visitor" category.
    I can see it now. "We need to go back to grandma's nursing home! I forget my meth lab!"

    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"

    Possibly a family member set it up in the room. Method labs like this are actually very portable. They just stopped by to visit granny and cook up a batch. No one could smell it cause the guy next door had c diff.

    As if healthcare personnel didn't have enough to worry about already. Now you can add fireproof scrubs to your list of must-have equipment or risk getting your hiney singed when a meth lab blows up. I joke, but it's a sad/scary situation.

    I'm curious about that too. I would think it would take up a little space, and from what I've been told they (meth labs) emit odors caused by all the chemicals.

    It didn't quote, but this was in reply to the comment about the meth lab going unnoticed.
