Council puts a halt to the closing of Knowles Home.

by Rod Williams - Finally, last year Metro closed the Bordeaux nursing homes. If Metro would have continued with its plan to close Knowles,  Metro would have finally been out of the nursing home business, but the Council intervened and stopped that from happening.  Now, a new ordinance requires a resolution by the council before discontinuing operations at Knowles Assisted Living facility. 

My view is that we should never have gotten in the nursing home business to start with and after the passage of Medicare which gave poor people health care choices, we should have closed our charity hospital.  Unfortunately, once government starts providing a service, it is very hard to discontinue it even if it is inefficient and no longer needed.
