Nursing home inquiry grows

TRENTON | The state is expanding its investigation into a company operating eight assisted-living facilities, some of which allegedly evicted residents who tried to switch to Medicaid after they spent thousands of dollars of their own money at the homes.

The office began an investigation into Wisconsin-based Assisted Living Concepts in May after receiving complaints from several residents who were involuntarily discharged from the homes or threatened with eviction after spending down their private accounts.

The state Public Advocate's Office announced Friday more than 100 current and former residents could have experienced similar circumstances.
