Former Employees Protest Over Unsafe Nursing Home Conditions
employees of one nursing home say they were working to renovate a
portion of the building when they stumbled upon serious mold. They are now claiming that when they tried to alert management, but they
were fired for speaking out.
The former employees say that the management of the facility told them to stop tearing down the molded wall because they didn't have the money to fix it. The former employees say they are protesting because they are very concerned
about the health of the residents and staff at the home.
The managers at the facility have a different story. They claim that the employees termination was justified and that the mold has been tested by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They say that the CDC's results show the mold is neither poisonous or toxic and that the former employees are simply retaliating for their termination. For more, read the story.
