Interesting Article about Nursing Homes

Violations Reported at 94% of Nursing Homes

 

More than 90 percent of nursing homes were cited for violations of federal health and safety standards last year, and for-profit homes were more likely to have problems than other types of nursing homes, federal investigators say in a report issued on Monday.

 

About 17 percent of nursing homes had deficiencies that caused “actual harm or immediate jeopardy” to patients, said the report, by Daniel R. Levinson, the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services.

 

Problems included infected bedsores, medication mix-ups, poor nutrition and abuse and neglect of patients.
