Violations reported at 94% of nursing homes
New York Times, October 1, 2008
More than 90% of nursing homes were cited for violations of federal health and safety standards in 2007, and for-profit homes were more likely to have problems than other types of nursing homes, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. About 17% of nursing homes had deficiencies that caused "actual harm or immediate jeopardy" to patients, said the report. Problems included infected bedsores, medication mix-ups, poor nutrition, and abuse and neglect of patients.
