    The family should have been made aware that she was in the hospital with a fx (which is a state reportable by the way). I'd be taking names and calling the state.

    I used to work at an assisted living facility, a couple different ones actually. Alot of times they are nice and look pretty and the care givers may have more time, but there is not enough supervision in most of them. A nurse from 8-5, M-F, with unliscensed personnel running the floor otherwise is a recipe for disaster.
