Since the late 90's, nursing home residents have been secretly targeted by drug companies and pharmacies. These drug companies paid undisclosed “kickbacks” and other incentives in exchange for promoting certain drugs for use in the elderly. Targeting the frail elderly to grow the market share for drugs while maximizing corporate profits without regard for the risks those drugs posed is wrong, and in some cases, resulted in harm and even death. The financial motives driving these promotions were never disclosed to the nursing home residents or their families. Drugs ranging from pain medication (opioids) to drugs for Alzheimer’s, dementia, behavior and psychiatric issues were the focus of these secret and most profitable kickback agreements.



Drug manufacturers and distributors created and paid financial incentives to physicians to over-prescribe addictive narcotic medications. Suicide, addiction and accidental drug overdose are at record levels. These secret agreements are believed to have contributed to the current opioid epidemic in our country.



Patients in group homes and patients who have been admitted or treated in psychiatric facilities have been targeted to receive often times improper and/or unnecessary psychiatric drugs so as to increase the pharmaceutical companies’ market share for these particular drugs.
