The Nursing Home of Horror: Prosecutor investigates death of 68 elderly in Chania

Appalling conditions in a nursing home in Chania may have lead to the deaths of 68 to 72 elderly. Excessive use of sedatives and ill-treatment nearing torture. Elderly left to starve, tied in their beds, often beaten by personnel. Filth and negligence and accommodation in the basement for those paying less. A high rate of deaths, much higher above the average in other nursing homes in the country.
Following complaints by relatives and allegations by former personnel, the public prosecutor in Chania on the island of Crete now investigates possible criminal acts aiming to seize the elderly’s properties and wealth.
The horror in the nursing home has been revealed after the daughter of an elderly woman who got suspicious of her mother’s death. At the same time, former employees started to speak to local and nationwide media about the conditions in the home that have shocked the society.
