HR McMaster's Father Died Under "Suspicious" Circumstances, Police Say

It has been a rough month for retired general and former Trump National Security Advisor HR McMaster.

A few weeks after he announced he would be leaving the West Wing - the culmination of months of tension between him and the Trump administration - McMaster's father passed away last week at a retirement community in Philadelphia, according to the New York Post.

Now, McMaster's father's death is being investigated by local authorities as "suspicious" after allegations surfaced that the elder McMaster didn't receive the proper care.

Some staffers at the center have come forward to say that records relating to his death have been falsified. HR McMaster Sr. was 84 at the time of his death.

Cathedral Village said in a statement that it contacted authorities as soon as it was aware of the incident.

"We want to reassure you that the safety and welfare of every resident at Cathedral Village remains our utmost priority and we will continue to make every effort to ensure their well-being," the statement read.

Philadelphia police searched the retirement home - Cathedral Village - where the incident took place.

The search was part of a broader investigation being conducted by the PA. Attorney General’s Office into the possibility of institutional neglect after the elder McMaster fell.

Holy crap - this story is a LOT bigger than an old, possibly impaired man dying in what is probably a nice care facility. Sometimes you can't spend 24/7 caring for someone - even if you love them. Sometimes is money, sometimes it's the fact that you have your own life and family that also needs you. I was able to spend time with my parents and they were able to stay at their home, but many friends are faced with this tough decision. 

 

But this Broward County cops death has deep state written all over it.

People die from abuse/neglect in "nursing homes" all the time.  Covering one's ass after a death has been raised to a high art form in those facilities.  Many of the people who work there are, frankly, just scumbags.  They steal from patients, they steal narcotics from the facility and generally don't give a flying crap whether you live of die.  They're just clock-punchers who like to supplement their income by stealing.

Locally, a private room in a "care facility" is $10k a month or get a roommate and it's $5k a month...unless you're in management or a real nurse, no job there pays over $12/hr. The local Wendy's burger joint pays $10hr...

"Care facilities" are the biggest scam on the planet...they bankrupt you in a heartbeat and then Medicaid steps in to pay the price until you die.

There are a few really good ones that bust their ass and truly care about the old folks there... They usually move on to better jobs after themselves being so abused by management which seems universally awful (and old people can get pretty violent, esp. if you are a skinny chick of average height). Just sayin

Bidet attachments should be standard on all nursing home and hospital toilets. 90-95% of elder abuse comes from minimum wage morons not wanting to clean someone else's shit. If they could just set them on a toilet and flip a switch, everyone would be better off.

Also, EVERYONE should have these in their homes. A good one is like $60 on Amazon. Installs in a few minutes with no experience. Really, probably most people who have such devices wouldn't even need to send their parents to a nursing home. Only those who really need 24 hour supervision a la Alzheimer's would really need to go to such facilities.

If they could just set them on a toilet

When they are in bad shape, that is nearly impossible. ~180lbs feels like 1000lbs when the person cannot move themselves...now add in the screams of pain when you move them...it's just terrible...if I am heading for that situation, my last ounce of strength will be to start my car in my garage and take a nap...

Or take something, farmers know. In Aus need to have seen a doctor in the last 3 months and plausible story like heart attack. My lovely mum died at 86 because a doctor set her broken leg compound fracture freehand without X-ray held up in one hand into plaster after a ladder slipped, so she could not run anymore after sheep. She had had enough of it. Gone with a smile. Everything perfect.

father had a fatal stroke at breakfast with a piece of toast and butter honey and rat trap cheese in his mouth.  At 100  plus 1 day.        Get a plan, bugger it.

You've clearly never cleaned piss out of the padded power lift chair for the 3rd time in a week.  Super max overnight adult diapers and water proof lining sheets only help so much.  Our patient improved after a rough couple of months but beds and furniture get ravaged from incontinence problems.  She's still home though.  Keeping her as happy as possible.  Not easy at this age.  Dementia is a serious issue many families are not equipped to handle.  An 87 year old 200 pound adult whose mind is failing is nothing like taking care of a toddler.

Careful, that fate might await all of us.

Counting bedsores while we wait for the ants to come and sting us to death.

Not me. Tie a string to my toe and the other to my Deerslayer.

I have always been good at solving problems though.

If the fucking leeches think they will get everything I have eeked out in this dystopia in my last couple months of life they are going to be sorely mistaken.

If God tells me that life is sacred and I shouldn't have done that, then I guess I will be in hell with the majority of life on this planet.
