I gave my 2 weeks notice and picked up my final paycheck. After I picked up my check, I called the state and made an "anonymous call". I told the state that elderly people were being tied up in restraints at a small private home like facility for the elderly. I told the state to arrive at the facility at 9pm and they would see it for themselves. Instead the state told me that they went around at 8pm and that the home care aide admitted that some of the patients were tied up. However, when I asked the state if they actually went into the patients rooms they said no. The state said they didn't turn on the lights because they didn't want to wake up the patients!!!!!!!:eek::mad:. Wouldn't it not had made their case stronger if the state would have walked in to the patients room and examined the patient in restraints themselves!!!!!! Anyway, I later heard that they got a small fine and a warning. The owner of the home accused one of the home care aides of calling the state. This happened years ago.
