Four Out Of Six Nursing Homes In The Same County Are Placed On Watch List For Severe Abuse

Four out of six nursing homes in one county are on a watch list for reports of severe abuse. The state has an overall rating of a B, whereas many surrounding states have a D rating through a state report card grading system.  The overall B does not make up for the fact that 138 out of 680 homes in the state are still on the watch list.

The state advocates for better care in nursing homes says this, "don't be afraid to speak up about concerns, questions you may have, speak with the administration, call the office, get resolution to problems, call us, we'll do our best to help." For more, read the story.
