The Halifax Courier reported that Faheza Simpson, manager at Elm View Nursing Home in Halifax, told juries in 2011 and 2013, as part of a case where she has been charged with neglect, that she was not a part of the problem. As manager, she contributed the lack of communication regarding patients’ pressure sores to the fact that the nursing home didn’t have internet and thus the forms to be completed had to be sent through the postal service, which caused a delay.

She also denied that she “accepted the system” of poor care, saying, “I personally wasn’t happy because I was trying to do my best with whatever was available at the time… It was not my standard to accept that kind of care… it was because we were short of staff.”

Then why didn’t she hire more staff?
