About 1,650 nursing home workers in Nebraska whose employer failed to pay them last month received paychecks this week, according to the court-appointed receiver managing the facilities and the Omaha World-Herald.

Funds continue to come in from the homes’ usual sources: Medicare, Medicaid and private payments.

Many of the communities have organized fundraisers to help provide them with some additional funds.
