SEX OFFENDERS IN VIRGINIA’S NURSING HOMES

Now that I’ve got your attention with the title…let me share with you a recent discovery.
We found a nursing home (large multi-state chain of “for-profit” nursing homes) which requires its residents (or the resident’s representative) to sign the attached notice. In sum, the notice advises all who read it that “sex offenders may be living and/or working in” the area of the nursing home. The notice further advises the resident to “exercise whatever due diligence” the resident feels is necessary.

What about sex offenders living in the facility? What about sex offenders working in the facility?

My Question: Just what the H#@* is the facility’s responsibility of “due diligence” to protect its residents?
