  1. I encourage anyone who pays taxes in the US to re-read this report from April 2018…
    https://s3.amazonaws.com/assets.fiercemarkets.net/public/004-Healthcare/external_Q22018/MHSGENESIS_IOTANDE.pdf

    It’s the last-published piece of oversight on the GENESIS trainwreck and leads any rational observer to questions like:
    – Was Madigan EVER inspected? At the time, it was not, due to the results of the other 3. (Madigan is about the size of other 3 combined)
    – Were the other 3 ever re-tested prior to moving on?
    – Is the 35 usability score now above the minimum acceptable of 70? (I’ve heard DoD say things are ~20% better. That would fail.)
    – Are the critical cybersecurity failures fixed?
    – Are the extensive downtimes fixed?
    – Are critical pharmacy errors fixed?
    – (again) Why hasn’t the author of this report, Director Behler, testified to congress?
    – Shouldn’t we know these answers before moving on to more facilities?
