Are North Carolina Nursing Homes Being Inspected Often Enough?

The State of North Carolina has 106 state inspectors who are expected to properly inspect the state’s 435 nursing homes.

But, Federal law permits only state inspectors – not county inspectors – to evaluate the county’s four nursing homes. Yet, some of those nursing homes have repeatedly been cited for violations by federal and state inspectors.
