All About Books: Bill Beerman
Retired former journalist and certified internal auditor Bill Beerman recounted to Lynn Moorer the high points of his investigation into nursing home care in his chronicle, Mary Regina’s Nursing Home, which he wrote after observing his mother’s care in hospitals and a nursing home in Pennsylvania. As he struggled to figure out how the system worked, he watched his mother’s rapid decline after she was discharged from a hospital, following a fall which broke a hip, to a nursing home about which Beerman was able to obtain very little useful information. He also shares his alarming findings about government oversight of nursing homes.
