The viral video of 20-year-old black man Jaydon Hayden viciously assaulting a white 75-year-old military veteran at a Detroit nursing home has shocked the country.

According to a local news report, Hayden — who has a separate pending assault case — was taken to the facility after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Why a violent criminal with COVID-19 was being housed in a nursing home and able to get into the room of a long-term elderly resident has yet to be answered.

The scene of the crime, Westwood Nursing Center in Detroit, is part of a privately owned, for-profit chain that receives Medicare and Medicaid funds from the state in spite of scores of complaints about the quality of care and understaffing.

According to a website that tracks nursing home abuse, Westwood Nursing Center received \$15.9 million dollars in revenue in 2018, yet remains critically understaffed, with an average review of two stars for staffing and quality by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services.

The owners profiting from this systematic neglect of the elderly are two Indian immigrants, Devenkumar Patel and his wife Amee Patel.

According to public documents, Devenkumar Patel is a criminal who was sentenced to 16 months in prison in 2016 for health care fraud. Patel used his chain of nursing homes to perpetuate the fraud, yet despite his conviction, the Patels are still listed as being in control of Westwood Nursing Center.

The majority of nursing homes in America are owned by private equity firms and health care capitalists who cut corners in pursuit of profits, yet they still receive money from Medicare and Medicaid to care for the elderly in a substandard way. In New York State, after a period of privatizing state-run nursing homes, allegations of abuse and neglect rose 18% from 2013 to 2015.

For-profit nursing homes have been found to provide low quality care compared to public ones due to low wages and staff cuts intended to maximize profitability. Many times the greed is compounded by miserly Indian owners and a neglectful, poorly paid and impatient black or immigrant staff.

Charlene Harrington, who has studied nursing homes for decades, has found that the worst nursing homes in the country are by and large privately owned. In the age of COVID-19, this has led to higher mortality rates in many privately run homes, especially those with high levels of minority staff and residents. The average assisted living care facility worker in America makes less than \$10 dollars an hour.

Why the federal government continues to provide taxpayer funds to line the pockets of shysters like the Patels is a question not many are asking. America’s elderly end up paying the price.

  1. Why the federal government continues to provide taxpayer funds to line the pockets of shysters like the Patels is a question not many are asking.

    As Ayn Rand wrote and said many times, when observing an apparent contradiction, check your premises.

    My question re the Federal Patel enrichment: “Why wouldn’t they?”

  2. fnn says:

    I didn’t know the Patels had branched out from motels into nursing homes.

  3. TGD says:

    Take the “Andover (NJ) Rehabilitation and Subacute Care” nursing home where dozens of patients have died of Covid-19 for an example. That facility is owned by Chaim “Mutty” Scheinbaum and Louis Schwartz, hasidic Jews who live in the hasidic enclave of Lakewood, NJ. Bilking gentiles is an integral part of the hasidic tradition.

    Nursing homes are “cash cows” since most of the patients suffer mental and/or physical impairments and aren’t able to scrutinize the nursing home and physician charges billed to Medicaid. And both Medicare and Medicaid are bilked for tens of billions of dollars every year in fraudulent charges.

    And then there’s Shlomo Rechnitz, the owner “Brius Healthcare,” the largest nursing home chain in California with 80 locations. That SOB is beyond repugnant.

  4. The latest thing is they hire BAs in Bus Admin to cut staff, increase case-load, and bust unions. And it works.

    The trouble is, nobody ever thinks they’re going to get old. Certainly not the people who people who seem to be vaguely older than themselves “boomers.” And so they don’t do anything about the crime that is old-person gulags. They don’t like to think of themselves there, and so they don’t. Next generation: same thing. Next generation: same thing. Face it. When you get old you are doomed to anywhere from 1 to 10 years of abject suffering that you would not suffer if monsters were not hiring ill-paid and over-worked monsters so they can rake in the cash thanks to you.

  6. That jogger should be exterminated.

    What an evil POS.

    Imagine if a young white man beat an old black man and taped it.

    The father of the monster claims he should be forgiven because he has autism , also known as schizophrenia.

  8. It is not possible to see this on youtube except in a hugely censored version. Tucker showed all the punches (probably) but cut off the victim so all you could see is a man punching. Another station showed the victim getting punched once but in fact he was punched repeatedly for nearly a minute. It was like a boxing video where one fighter is out on his feet and being pummeled by another until the referee steps in. Both versions were edited to cloud the view. The assailant was reportedly in the home to be “rehabilitated.” Oh dear! Bad outcome!

  9. Exile says:

    Coulter’s “Adios” documented numerous instances of fraud, human trafficking and patient abuse by Numerica’s vastly-overrated and shamelessly-self-promoting Patel-caste.

    And of course, Trump & Javanaka are doing all they can to make sure the subcontinent’s most shameless, sociopathic and criminally-inclined adventurers get a one-way ticket to America – with their cousins and any others whose papers they can forge soon to follow.

  10. Does this surprise anybody? When staying in the accommodations of anyone of the famed Patel family please remember that while they are pissed off Hindoos of the merchant-caste they think of you as casteless animals unfit to even break bread with them. Yup, these people won’t eat from the same plate you have!

    Oh yeah, and they have a problem with murdering the women they publically gang rape. But what do you expect from the longest practiced religion from the global south?

    He should be summarily lynched. The black race is so f*cked up and filled with hate that they view an incident like this as “payback” for racism and so called white privilege. We can’t coexist with the animalistic black race any longer.

  12. Blacks are holy, so we can’t name the race.

    Jews can kill Palestinians, blacks can attack whites.

    Made people get to dehumanize unmade people.

    Are you a ‘made’ or an ‘unmade’?

  13. Anon[339] • Disclaimer says:

    Where is the link to the video? You need to spread this. Without seeing, it’s another anecdote, academic. Seeing can affect even the most beaten down, brainwashed.

  14. MarkinLA says:

    has shocked the country.

    No, I wasn’t shocked once I saw who was doing the punching.

  15. Bartolo says:

    This background information regarding nursing homes is the kind of story that should be national news in a decent country where journalism has not turned into prostitution. But instead, the only person I ever heard of bringing it up is Erik Striker and he does so in a small outlet.

    I guess you don’t watch Tucker Carlson. He had a segment on nursing home abuse on Friday with the black criminal thug (pictured above) beating on the helpless old white veteran over and over. Apparently the idiot filmed it himself. Tucker also showed a woman “caregiver” deliberately knocking over a man in a walker.

    As loved ones are no longer allowed to enter these facilities, god know what staff there is getting away with. I’d rather commit suicide than allow myself to be placed in one of those hell holes for the elderly.

    HHS did a study from 1992-2006 on length of stay in nursing homes before death. The average was 6 months, but men only lasted 3 while women averaged 8. It is not surprising that elderly men don’t last very long. Most, I think, would rather be dead than to be placed in one (probably against their will).

    Given the above study, how much longer would the elderly have survived in nursing homes absent covid-19? Not much longer, apparently.

    You and David Lynch by way of Frank Herbert have given me a business idea for our new, DIEverse world: The manufacture and installation of poison-gas teeth

    Consider yourself in on the ground floor. Man, I’m just bursting with energy for the first time in years.

    I’m a long way away from that day but I feel the same way and would prefer to visit a Jack Kevorkian than be abused by blacks and hispanics who hate whites.

    Ok that’s good, but did Carlson bring up that fact that so many nursing homes are owned by Jews and immigrant South Asians? And that Medicare scamming is rampant at these places? No, he knows his limits. I like the guy, but he knows his limits.
