At a Miami-Dade assisted living facility, a caretaker left a sick, 72-year-old stroke victim alone without air conditioning, locking the doors in the scorching heat so the man couldnt escape the tiny home.

At a facility in Plant City, caretakers slaughtered goats in the rear of the home to cook meals, scaring the mentally ill residents inside.

In Tampa, 27 people were forced to leave a home after residents were found languishing in filthy rooms infested by German roaches, termites and beg bugs their bodies covered in scabs and welts.

Those homes are among more than two dozen that state agents have targeted in the past three months shutting down the Miami and Tampa facilities in the most sweeping crackdown on assisted living facilities in years.

4. I'm very surprised. It's well known that Florida never cracks down on places like these...
and even attorneys know that it's pretty pointless to go after the people that run these homes because the laws in Florida are so lacking.
