That Nursing Home Thing

i am sensitive to the concerns of those protesting local nursing home closures as the Times- Standard reports. I will have to admit to not understanding what can be accomplished by their protests.

Seems to me the company owning the homes has decided to throw in the towel, for whatever reason. Are the protests supposed to get government to stop the closures somehow?

Believe it or not I'm all for government trying to help solve the problem, but what can government do? Force the homes to stay open?

My questions might have been answered in the Times- Standard article, except I couldn't read it due to the paywall (this despite being a subscriber to the paper's hard copy). Yet KIEM- TV ran a story on this last night and I was still left wondering what the protests hoped to accomplish.

This has me baffled too.
Huffman should be redirecting funds to save the lives of his constituents, instead of always chasing more land grabs and stripped rights.

If you want to protest someone, go back to the source -- HSU closing its nursing program. It's been poison for Humboldt County. They tried to downplay the number of graduates who work locally. To know it was bogus, you'd need only ask any company or nonprofit that employs nurses. We're hurting for nurses.
