Mary Adelaide Mendelson, author of "Tender Loving Greed: How the Incredibly Lucrative Nursing Home 'Industry' Is Exploiting American's Old People and Defrauding Us All," discusses the state of nursing homes and the elderly. Mendelson discusses the isolation the elderly feel in nursing homes and how nursing homes have turned into a big business with little to no protection for the elderly. Studs plays "Hello in There" - John Prine (1971).
