What do you usually get? For me, the end is 50% reading transitions / 50% luck (in terms of not messing up and racing stuff), so it can be tough to get a good score...

Default Re: SM Scores

hey i finished my lit homework for tonight!!! !!

1-3- Examples of mentally ill patients who died in private homes for the mentally ill (Randolph Maddix and Lisa Valante- suicide; Gregory Ridges- murdered)
4- NY closed wards and forced ill onto the streets/homes
5- A NY Times extensive report show homes developed into poor places to live
6- Report shows the state has not been taking adequate measures to help the ill
7- Investigation procued the first full accounting of deaths- many died, often premature
8- Two largest homes- Leben Home/Seaport Manor- quarter of residents who died<50 years old
9/1 (page 2)- Many died due to suicides/lack of care
Overall main idea- The homes offer poor living conditions to the mentally ill, and the state has neglected this. The NY Times did a report on the conditions.
2- Mentally ill naturally have shorter life expectancies
3-4- Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, famous psychiatrist, finds the analysis disturbing (many premature deaths for example)
5- Many dead, # of prevented deaths is impossible to know
6-12- NY state department of health- lack of death reports; officials declined to comment, though a debuty health commissioner, Dr. Antonia C. Novello said more investigation would occur (never happened)
Overall main idea- Many deaths could be prevented and the state does not investigate into the deaths enough
1- 15,000 mentally ill adults live in>100 homes in the state
2-4- 60's- wards were closing, homes were created and envisioned to be the solution
5-9- numerous reports were done, the homes were total failures and "flophouses"
10-13- Homes are poorly run and staffed, many lack any knowledge of mental-health training
Overall main idea- Homes are responsible for a large number of people, but they are not adequate for support.
1- Nathaniel Miller- former porter at Surf Manor, claims two horrifying accounts of the ill, but describes them as common
2-3- The ill live in poor conditions, and their (mental) conditions are terrible; many do not survive
4-6- Deaths are common- 1 death every 3-8 weeks, 14/66 dead<50 years old. Seaport has a high rate of death for middle-aged people; one resident commited suicide and Seaport did not disclose true information on the death
7- NY's homes have been terrible for decades- "national tragedy"
8- Though some homes offer good care, many still don't.
9- Homes are costly; government spends ~$40,000/resident per year; adds up to $600 million total/year
10- Government does not hold the homes accountable- "where will the mentally ill live?"
11- Thousands of the ill have lived in poor and chaotic conditions for decades
Overall main idea- The homes have poor living conditions and often result in numerous, preventable deaths
1- Summer of '99 was very hot; soaring temperatures creating poor conditions
2- Leben Home- rooms heat up quickly; hotter indoors than outdoors
3- >350 residents vulnerable to heat and couldn't pay for air conditioning
4- Operator Jacob Rubin recieves >$3 million/year from the government, keeps most of it for his own uses instead of helping the ill
5-6- Tough conditions; rooms were suffocating and residents kept getting sick
7-8- Resident Michael Bonner suffers from the heat and died in a terrible condition
9- State Office of Mental Health provided sufficient care, but they do not see to the homes who have >3x as many people
10-11 Department of Health deputy health commissioner says to keep residents comfortable in weather >85 degrees, but the state does not require it.
Overall main idea- Summer of '99 caused many problems because of heat; cooling is not sufficient. The homes do not provide enough care.
1- Mr. Rubin would not comment; eventually lost his license.
2- Melvin Ryan/Lisa Valante - schizophrenics with a terrible mental state
3- Both tried to commit suicide; eventally did
4- Both jumped out 7th story windows in similar time periods
5- Homes were thought to be a good substitute.
6-11- examples of thsoe who died; suicide.
12- Suicides were left uninvestigated; in other places the inquires would be routinely prompted
Overall main idea- Numerous undocument suicides occured.
1- Valante had been severely sick since her 20's
2- Mr. Ryan lived with his parents but eventually they could not care for him; he has schizophrenia and abuses drugs
3- '97-'98 arrival in Rockland Psychiatric Center, both had already gone through many problems
4- Ryan put under suicide watch at one point
5- Valante wrote graffiti about death/evil
6-7 Ryan/Valante sent to Anna Erika because NY does not want to provide long-term psychiatric care
8- Like many, Anna Erika was cited for poor care
9- Therapists did what they could, but there weren't enough
10- Ryan/Valante suffered psychotic episodes
11-12- Summer of '00, Ryan refused medication, asked to move from 2nd-7th floor and eventually jumped out of the window and died
13-1 (next page)- Valante repeated, jumping out another 7th story window
Overall main idea- Under poor treatment, two residents jumped out of 7th story windows to their deaths
2-4- Vincent Sirangelo, Anne Erika's operator, said the home did everything necessary and they had done nothing wrong.
5-6- Anna Erika administrators gave only single phone calls to the families of Ryan/Valante to inform of their deaths
7-8 Fall of '00, inspectors were to arrive at Seaport Manor and the staff was "preparing" for it, falsifying information.
9- A worker, Toshua Courthan says the administration told the staff to "be creative" to keep their jobs (falsifying info)
10- Courthan eventually fired after reporting the falsified records; suing Seaport
11- The inspectors that day never detected the false files; Seaport remained opened.
12-1 (next page)- The home origianlly created hope for the ill; for them to "become normal"
Overall main idea- Seaport falsified information to keep themselves in the business; the residents live in terrible, miserable conditions.
2- Seaport dubbed as "The new Warehouse for the Insane" in a 1997 study
3- Life inside Seaport was shown after >10 visits, >500 pages of reports, and >50 interviews w/workers/residents
4- During a typical visit, residents can be seen in poor conditions
5- Two residents openly dealt crack; un-safe environment
6- Resident prostitute says it's tough living and she does it to survive
7- Ambulances visit regularly; 93 runs to the home in a 3-month period once
8- Poor staff often abuses the residents; takes advantage
9- One Seaport died about 1/month from '95-'01; at least 79 died
10- A resident, Jerry, said Seaport isn't helping
11- Seaport was "noncompliance in all major areas of operation"
12- Reports cited inadequate staffing/dangerous lapses in medication distribution; investigators refused to examine rooms because they were so fetid; workers could walk past residents without noticing them
Overall main idea- Seaport Manor was a terrible place to live in- there was plenty of filth, neglect, and lack of care for the residents
1- Government officials say they will crack down on Seaport
2-3- Erratic response- Seaport may be left open by installing new operators; otherwise a $20,000 fine
4- Residents remain in neglect and poor conditions
5- Operators- Baruch Mappa, Martin Rosenberg, and Emil Klein says they would not be interviewed
6- Seaport, like many homes, say that the state does not provide enough money
7- Department of Health did not take action of Seaport; helping trouble homes improve conditions was preferred
8- Closure of a home is the last resort, says Robert R. Hinckley, a deputy state health commissioner.
9- The residents of Seaport see life as what they can do to endure
10- In the early 70's, Kingsboro Psychiatric center began to be deinstitutionalized
Overall main idea- Seaport provided insufficient care, though they were not really penalized.
1-2- Mr. Happa, a real estate developer, thought of Seaport while Kingsboro was relocating its patients. The building opened 3 miles away.
3- The idea was shared by Mappa and the state to provide care for the ill
4-5- Mappa and two business partners never had mental health expertise- as a result, trouble arised.
6- Late 70's- Seaport had terrible conditions; no chargers were filed
7- Clinic workers arrived at Seaport, but the number of workers have decreased (20 to 8)
8-9- Past decade- the home has been run by Esther Elizabeth Rosenberg, daughter of one of the operators. She had little experience. Considered incompetent by the state.
10- Nothing has been done with Seaport- state recently levied a $7,000 fine on the home.
11- While Rosenberg was removed, it was allowed for her son-in-law, Seth Fried, as administrator
12-1 (next page)- Toshua Courthan worked for a short time at Seaport, but promoted quickly
Overall main idea- Seaport failed to meet the goals shared between them and the state; many problems arised and have not been fixed well.
2- Courthan has seen large amounts of misconduct; reported to the state inspectors
3- Courthan was fired; sued the home for saying racially insensitive comments
4- 15 current/former workers at Seaport support her account
5-7- Courthan and her sister, Ms. Johnson, began working and were quickly promoted, despite knowing much at all. They were eventually swamped with work.
8- State inspectors knew of the poor evaluations
9-11- One night, the two had to forge files, if necessary, and after a long night of work, files showing a non-existant doctor and false diagonosis were done.
12- Inspectors did not detect faked documents en masse, but they deceted "altered or missing" files.
Overall main idea- Seaport had employees forge fake files to get past the inspectors.
1- Rosenberg would not comment
2- Courthan/Johnson says deception didn't end with forged records
3- November '00- Resident Dorothy Clinton set herself on fire; death was ruled an accident
4- Workers say the cause of death was invented; another cause was present.
5- Clinton, 48, dressed herself and intentionally ignited herself in bed
6- Courthan wrote in Clonton's file that she should've been hospitalized; Rosenberg ordered Courthan to remove the notes
7- Clinton's death was one of the few investigated
8- Courthan was dismissed 3 months later; she faxed the inspectors a letter on the forged records
9- Courthan says inspectors did nothing
10- A spokesman for the State Department of Health, Robert Kenny, said the two talked to inspectors only in early '00, telling about administrators stealing money from residents.
11- Mr. Kenny says inspectors talked to the two regularly, later.
12- Kenny says allegations "were not new to inspectors"
13- After Courthan was dismissed, the home had Johnson arrested/charged for stealing $200 from residents- fired, chargers were later dropped
Overall main idea- Seaport falsified more records, omitting/changing information about a death. The state also did not respond to the allegations made by Courthan/Johnson
1- Of the 79 who died in the 7-yea rperiod, average age of death=58, 24 of the dead<50
2- "People were dying like flies" says Ms. Peters
3- The amount of deaths that could have been avoided are left unknown- the home failed to notify/include certain information
4- The state department of health only looked into 3 deaths; only ones appeared to be done at 26 of the largest and most troubled homes in the city where at least 946 died
5-6- Elayne Silverman took her life at the age of 39 at Seaport; nobody noticed
7- Nobody noticed; eventually a neighbor reported the death. Seaport administrators couldn't explain how it happened.
8- Her death was never investigated along with many others; Stephen Willner, Lewis Howard, and Albert Jarrell
9- Residents are free to come and go from the home, but the home is required to keep track. If one is missing >24 hours, a report must be filed.
Overall main idea- People often died at Seaport, but many were left unnoticed and unexplained.
1- At the Leben Home, a group of mentally-ill people were led to a van.
2- None resisted; eye surgery was to be performed on them
3- This was repeated throughout '99-'00; 50 operations on >30 residents
4- "eye surgery was like a catchable disease" says Peter Peterson, one of the more alert residents
5- Few complained about eyesight or had noted problems
6- Procedures varied from cataract oeprations to laser surgery- why this was done is still unknown
7- The State did not learn of these operations until the NY Times discovered them.
8- For-profit residences have been created to exploit the mentally-ill since the closing of wards
9- Residents are abused and taken advantage of for the homes to earn money from.
10- The State knew that doctors could be taking advantages of Leben's residents.
Overall main idea - The Leben Home, along with others, often took advantage of their residents simply to profit off of.
1- Records show the department otherwise ignored the home; at least 8 Leben residents who had prostate surgery also had the eye procedures.
2- The Health Department would not comment on the investigation, along with the ophthalmologist, Dr. Shaul Debii, who was eventually removed
3- The homes were intended to give the ill a better chance at life, but this had not occured
4- Many the homes have been shown as a place where the ill are taken advantage of
5- There are the operators, who are businessmen, providers, who often have tarnished records, and a nonprofit group who takes advantage of the government payments
6- There are also the ill, who are taken advantage of
7- Velma McFarlane, a former Leben worker, says she had to force the residents into seeing doctors.
8- Residents require an array of services
9- Most of the workers/residents spoke of coercive tactics for selfish wants.
10- The government pretty much led to all of these problems
11- The state were to pay the homes a daily sum to pay for each person's food, shelther, and supervision- a small $28/person
Overall main idea- Residents need care, but often get care that not to their advantage but rather to the home's.
1- Outside health care providers were to be brought in; they could be charged so that the providers could earn more money. The providers could get more patients as a result.
2- Fees are billed to Medicaid/Medicare (see page 4 paragraph 9 for statistics)
3- Evidence of fraud and waste is known by officials
4- State Department of Health have not done investigations, but they have only done a recent crackdown on part-time medical clinics.
5- Robert R. Hinckley said the department refused to renew licenses for 50 clinics; delayed approving for 23 more.
6- Lack of a federal government response; surprising
7- Federal government essentailly supports the homes, but it has rarely done anything about it.
8- Danielle Gush, spokeswoman for the New york office of the federal Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services, said the office knew about the abuse in homes, but could not offer examples of inquiries.
9- Clarence J. Sundram, former chairman of the Commission on Quality of Care for the Mentally Disabled, says that a lot of public money is used to support the ill, but their conditions are still poor.
10- Leben workers still recall the eye surgery.
Overall main idea- The government has not sufficed in caring and tending to the residents.
1- Robert Fazio says that they simply just put a laser beam in his eye
2- Dr. Debbi, who operated on Fazio, operated on >30 Leben residents for an 18-month period from '99-'00.
3- Gail Barnabas said Debbi said it was cataracts; he and many others filled the van.
4- Since residents are sick, medical procedures are required to be notified to the state.
5- Henry Dowling thought it was unnecessary for his brother, Robert Downling
6- Barbara Casali, Barnabas's sister, said her sister never complained about her eyes.
7- Cataract surgery is rare for people at Barnabas's age; she was among at least 3 other residents her age to get it
8- A cataract is a cloudy/opaque area in the lens; surgery procedure, etc.
9- Debbi performed about 70 other procedures on residents from other homes; Ocean House, Wavecrest, and Parkview
10- Debbi refused to comment, stating privacy reasons.
11- Jeffrey Edelman, whose family runs Parkview/Wavecrest, prased Debbi saying that he is trustworthy.
Overall main idea- Probably unnecessary operations took place.
1- A complaint was filed with the Health Department after The Times uncovered the eye procedures
2- Most residents who had the residents continue to live at the home, which is now known as Queens Adult Care.
3-5- Kurt Tretmann said that the operation made his vision worse- Debbi says it was to take time, but it never has, and other doctors told him incorrect lens were implanted.
6- Others have no money; Debbi recieved >$3,000 as payment from Medicaid/Medicare
7- Eye procedures were just a fraction of the many costs billed to Medicaid/Medicare for Mr. Dowling; over $150,000 was billed, despite Downling not having any serious physical ailments.
8- $70,000 for therapy sessions/$20,000 for van services
9- A resident at Brooklyn manor received $45,626 in retirement benefits, but Benito Fernandez, the home's operator, took every penny of it.
10- Not the only case- him and associates were noted for mishandling/approprating money.
11- The state refused to renew Hernandez's license.
12-1 (next page)- The case eventually was withdrawn becasue his wife was State Senator SNellie Santiago of Brooklyn
Overall main idea- eye operations did not help some, and costs were very high. In addition, Benito Fernandez took advantage of residents but wound up not getting punished.
2- 2 nonprofit groups sued the department but lost the case.
3- Ann Pegg Biddle says she always had a sense calls were being made to higher-ups and there was political pressure.
4- Fernandez still rusn the home; Senator Santiago was an administrator but eventually she was removed due to falsified records to make her appear like she attended classes for administrators.
5- Brooklyn Manor was found by the city inspection office to be in dismay and was cited for numerous serious violations
6- Fernandez/Brooklyn Manor aren't unique; there are several other operators like him
7- Operators do not need mental health training; the state does not often check backgrounds.
8- In addition to Fernandez, the ill are entrusted to people like Beryl Zyskind.
9- Zyskind ran Ocean house, and stole $120,000. He was eventually sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.
10- Zyskind's brother-in-law, Sherman Taub, took over his place. He was a resigned lawyer after accused of billing law clients of $232,000 for his personal expenses
11- State Commission on Quality of Care for the Mentally Disturbed issued a report on Ocean House stating numerous violations.
12- A company co-owned by Taub's son, Jay, received $420,000 in medicaid payments by submitting improper climas
13- The Manhattan district attorney is also investigating the allegations.
Overall main idea- the homes can be entrusted to poor operators, who can often take advantage of their residents
1- Ocean House is one of the few nonprofit homse, but it has been suggested as being run as a profit-making home
2- The home obtained Lexus luxury sedans, being at least $40,000 each. Residents also slept in filthy rooms at the same time.
3- Taub says every allegation is false
4- Mel P. Barkan, Ocean House's lawyer, says the home paid for Taub's personal expenses, but it was money that was owed to Taub.
5- Barkan says Taub knows what he is doing and is doing a fine job, at that.
6- Taub still runs the home.
7- Business of treating residents has attracted many
8- Ocean house reaped at least $185,000 annually from five providers
9- One of the hospitals paid for space that it never used; another paid for non-existant things, as well.
10- Ocean House stated the hospital (St. John's) simply not used the space it was entitled to.
11- St. John's said it rented space but not for "improper or fraudulent" reasons.
Overall main idea- Homes like Ocean House have been making money in numerous, "cheating," ways.
1- St. John's had billed Medicaid for $300,000 for clinic sessions for Ocean house residents that were social/recreational, not psyciatric
2- One such was an art group; it was 20 minutes and cost $141 per person per session.
3- Two new Hope officials were charged by the state attorney general with defrauding Medicaid of $9 million
4- Nonprofits also keep profiting from the homes.
5- New Horizon Counseling Center pays its executive VP $315,000; they take robust revenue from Medicaid.
6- New York Psychotherapy and Counseling Center had $8.5 million almost entirely from Medicaid.
7- Revenue derives from the relationships with the homes' operators
8-9- At many homes, residents are lined up at least once a month to see a podiatrist.
10- Eileen Marcus claims all they do is clip nails
11- The cost is not insignificant compared to the amount of money spent to feed/supervise residents. $750-$1,000 was used annually for each resident just for podiatric care.
Overall main idea- High amounts of funds are often being spent for "useless" things.
1- 137 names were posted in a morning schedule to see a podiatrist named Dr. David B. Fuchs, costing the government $100 per person.
2-3- Ernest Nelson has been treated for many conditions- Medicaid paid >$2,500 in total.
4- Dr. Fuchs says the patients "have corns, calluses, and pain"
5- Nelson just says money is being made off of them.
6- At Leben, residents are treated by a podiatrist named Dr. Stephen Smirlock.
7- Some administrators think paying podiatrists $50-$75 per visit was appropriate.
8- Benay Phillips claims that cutting somebody else's tonails can be injurious
9- Medical fraud investigators have long been suspicious of the podiatric professions; many have been punished for cheating Medicaid. Podiatrists in homes can still find ways to get around rules.
10- Records still show that the state has just stood by.
11- At Seaport, prescription podiatric creams were discovered in residents' rooms, which is a violation of rules. The reason behind this, however, was never looked into.
12-13 The podiatrists had prescribed so much cream that there was a problem- there wasn't enough room to store psychotropic drugs.
