Hidden away in filthy, rat-invested dungeons. Abandoned in "warehouses fir the dying." Clad in rags, forced to huddle half frozen in their own dirt. Fed slop not fit for animals. Subject to constant physical and mental abuses. Denied medication and the last shreds of human dignity by callous, incompetent caretakers.

An editorial by The Chicago Tribune denouncing the conditions of Chicago's nursing homes, where the elderly are routinely neglected and mistreated.
