On the evening of March 2, 2009, a young woman named Kia Nolte sat alone in her living room in a greystone apartment.
The lights were off and the heat was rising.
She was alone.
She wasn’t alone.
As her mother, Angela, stood nearby, the two were inching closer.
She watched as Kia leaned against the window.
She could hear Angela whispering to herself.
It’s time to wake up.
It was the night of the third day of the trial of the four women accused of the 1993 murder of a nursing home resident in the sleepy city of Silver Lake.
Kia had already gone to sleep.
The next morning, the coroner, Dr. Robert Koehler, pronounced her dead at the nursing home.
Her body was found in the stairwell by a woman who’d heard someone shout, “Help me, help me!” and had run out of the building to find help.
For weeks, Kia’s case has dogged the nation as the women’s trial began to take shape.
A coroner’s jury in Los Angeles County, California, began deliberating the fate of the women, and the trial has continued through the winter.
The case has sparked outrage and outrage in the United States, where nursing homes have become symbols of nursing homes’ neglect and oppression.
The women were charged with killing Kia because they suspected she was the person who had been abused at a nursing facility.
Koehlers attorney, Mark O’Brien, told me he and his wife, Jennifer, are shocked by the verdicts.
“The idea that a mother could be shot and killed in the street like this, and she doesn’t have the support of her community, that makes us sick,” he said.
The verdicts have shocked people across the country.
But the verdict has also made it clear that nursing homes, as a group, are suffering from widespread neglect.
According to a 2013 survey by the University of Illinois, the U.S. spends more than $100 billion a year on its nursing home system.
That includes more than half of all spending on facilities in the country, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The survey found that, as of 2014, there were more than 11,800 nursing homes in the U, with over 5 million residents.
The majority of the homes have long been abandoned.
“Many of these facilities are derelict, often neglected and unsafe,” the report states.
The report also noted that in some cases, there was little to no public oversight or oversight of the facilities.
In addition to being neglected, the facilities were often “overcrowded and overcrowded, with many residents being treated as less than human.”
A recent study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that some facilities had poor safety protocols and lacked adequate staffing.
In many cases, it found that the nursing homes were not required to make sure residents received necessary medications, but many facilities were not inspected by state or federal agencies.
The GAO also found that in states that have made nursing homes a priority in their budgets, the nursing facilities often had no plans to change their practices.
In fact, the majority of facilities that were identified as needing a major renovation in 2014 did not plan to do so, according a 2016 report from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHE).
The IHE report highlighted the need for more oversight of nursing home care and accountability in the care of the elderly and disabled.
But as nursing home residents have grown in number in recent years, the issue of nursing facilities’ mistreatment has continued to plague the community.
“We have seen a lot of the community come out of retirement to do outreach,” said Dr. Barbara Brown, a professor of nursing at the University at Buffalo.
Brown, who has been working with nursing home staff to address the mistreatment, said many people felt that they were being ignored.
“I know that some of the things that people have heard from nursing home workers have been incredibly negative, which is a real shame,” she said.
“What we have heard in nursing homes is that people are scared to go out because of the lack of oversight, and that the facility is just not staffed or monitored.”
In 2015, the IHE released its own report, which found that nursing home employees were often not trained on proper procedures or procedures were often ignored.
The IFEH report found that most nursing home systems were not properly trained on how to properly administer drugs and other medications to patients, and how to respond to patients’ requests for assistance.
“Nursing homes often don’t have staff who have the proper skills to do these things,” said Brown.
In a survey conducted by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1 in 5 women said they were afraid to leave a nursing house because of safety concerns.
In 2015 alone, more than a quarter of women in nursing home facilities said they feared leaving because they felt unsafe, according.
In response to the I
