Two men sit in the court­yard of the Athens Nurs­ing Home dur­ing a visit by Mayor Gior­gos Kami­nis, yes­ter­day. Fol­low­ing years of fi­nan­cial mis­man­age­ment by the pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion, which is cur­rently un­der crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion, a tem­po­rary ad­min­is­tra­tion ap­pointed by the City of Athens two months ago found out that the once-ro­bust in­sti­tu­tion is 30 mil­lion eu­ros in debt. Just two of the care home’s eight wings are cur­rently in op­er­a­tion, cater­ing for 105 in­di­vid­u­als, com­pared to its 405 to­tal ca­pac­ity. Mean­while, some of the staff have not been paid since 2010.
