Nursing Homes With Low Ratings Bring Less Than Desirable Environments

One state with mostly 1-2 star ratings makes it difficult for families to find a decent facility providing quality care to place their loved one. One family experienced this challenge when they placed their mother in a for-profit facility only to find her “lying there being eaten alive” by fire ants.
