NURSING HOME COMPLAINTS RISE 22%

The number of nursing homes in the U.S. that were cited for placing residents in “immediate jeopardy” rose 22% from 2000 to 2006, according to a study by USA Today. The newspaper, in an analysis of data from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, said inspectors in 2006 identified nearly 2,000 violations that jeopardized residents in about 850 of the nation’s 16,000 nursing homes.

Sad to say but abuse and neglect are on the rise!
