Corporate run nursing homes

Published on August 5th, 2008

There’s lots of chatter out there about corporate run nursing homes.  When OBRA was passed in 1987, many of the locally owned nursing homes realized that financially, they couldn’t keep up with the new regulations, either because of the survey process or becuase they couldn’t compete with larger nursing homes.  Here’s a brief article about it.  Go there, and you’ll find other links to additional articles.  I found one little blip particularly interesting.  It is a chart of corporations that run nursing homes in Wisconsin, and says that the largest nursing home chains were citing for actual harm and immediate jeopardy more frequently than the statewide percentage in the last three years.  In fact, out of 11 homes owned by Kindred, 10 of them were citied for serious violations. 

One wonders, how long will it take for the states to crack down on these sorts of results?
