CBC uses data to probe nursing home violence

CBC’s investigative unit is at it again with a series of stories on violence in Canada’s nursing homes. The stories started airing on Marketplace October 17, and continued on CBC Radio the following week. This is a murky subject that doesn’t usually get much press, but a critical concern for families of patients who have been bullied, beaten or worse. The series relies on data from across the country, gathered province-by-province, as well as inspection reports and loads of interviews with residents and families. Watch the Marketplace segment, then read CBC’s in-depth report, listen to clips, look at data summaries and view an interactive map and more at CBC News.
