Welcome to Families for Better Care’s third state-by-state Nursing Home Report Card. The goal of our report card is to show how states are doing in caring for our families and friends who live in America’s nursing homes. Here’s a preview of what we’ve found:
500,000 elderly living in dangerous conditions: Nearly half-a-million elderly nursing home residents are living in facilities that tolerate below average staffing scores.
Abuse and neglect vexes nursing home quality: 1 in 5 nursing homes abused, neglected, or mistreated residents in almost half of all states for the second consecutive report card.
States that are downright awful: Texas, Illinois, New Mexico, Michigan, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Indiana consistently linger at, or near, the bottom in state nursing home care, scoring failing grades in every nursing home report card.
