After 68 Nursing Home Deaths, Greek Prosecutors Order Probe

CHANIA — After reports that complaints about the conditions in a nursing home on Crete were ignored – and 68 residents died in a year – a prosecutor there has began an investigation, including whether the causes were falsified.

Greece's state broadcaster ERT said it happened at a facility in the major town of Chania on the island but didn't identify it, but reported that there had been a number of complaints about the lack of care.

As part of the inquiry, the prosecutor ordered the exhumation of the body of a woman who was a resident in the nursing home to determine the cause of death and the station said relatives of deceased residents have questioned what's been written on death certificates.

Nursing homes have been especially hard hit during the COVID-19 pandemic with the elderly and those with multiple or underlying conditions among the most susceptible to become critically ill or perish from it.
