Over 4,000 Bad Nursing Homes Identified

The federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has just released a list of over 4,000 U.S. nursing homes which are providing substandard care as it relates to pressure sores/decubitus ulcers and the over-use of physical restraints.

I live in Virginia and many of our nursing homes are on the list, including nursing homes located in Roanoke, Danville, Martinsville, Lynchburg, Clifton Forge, Marion, Wytheville, Staunton, Hillsville and the list goes on and on and on….

To seem more about the list and whether you may have a family member living in one of these facilities check out our Injury Board Blog.
