A Recent Department of Health and Human Services Report Indicates that 94% of America's Nursing Homes Have Been Cited for Violating Federal Health and Safety Standards.

But perhaps even more disturbing, however, is a study by Consumer Reports that found that state regulators fined only 50% of nursing homes whose misconduct warranted fines. Make no mistake about it—pressure sores, malnutrition, dehydration, and falls in nursing homes are not the inevitable consequence of old age and ill health.  They are, all too often, the result of understaffing of nursing homes and the resulting inability of the staff on hand to provide the care their residents need and deserve.
