Most Nursing Home Care Levels Lower Than Reported

The Center for Public Integrity has recently conducted a thorough analysis of the financial records of thousands of nursing homes across the Unites States – and the results are quite alarming. According to the CPI, staffing levels reported to government websites are not in line with actual payroll reports.
Over 80 percent of nursing homes involved in this analysis misreported levels of registered nurses on staff to pubic websites. While how much additional staff is falsely reported varies from home to home, at least 25 percent of these homes doubled their skilled-staffing numbers on public websites. Tragically, many families rely on these websites when choosing a home for their loved ones.
Nursing home abuse and neglect is a growing problem in our society and one often best combatted by selecting a home with a high skilled-staff-to-patient ratio. Finding this information is becoming much harder as necessary safeguards preventing false reports are not currently in place on many nursing home ranking websites. If you find a loved one has been mistreated in their care facility, you need an experienced attorney on your side immediately to help guard against further mistreatment and to see that justice is served.
