Nursing Homes Receive Government Aid Despite Low Ratings

Two nursing home facilities received millions of dollars in government aid despite their low quality ratings. Both homes received one star for their quality of care. One star represents "much below average” care and represent the bottom 20% in the state. At one home a woman died for slow response to an infection.

The facilities were still provided with low-cost mortgages equivalent to $21.5 million dollars in savings. The government subsidized loans historically offered to non-profit facilities have increased over the past few years despite their low ratings. For more, read the story.
