A new federal report shows more than 90
percent of nursing homes surveyed were cited for at least one
deficiency last year, a rate that's remained constant over the past
three years.
The typical nursing home drew citations for seven health and
safety deficiencies last year.
About 94 percent of the for-profit homes surveyed generated a
citation, compared to 91 percent for government nursing homes and
88 percent for non-profits.
The most common deficiencies centered on quality of care.
Another common problem involved meals, with 43 percent of homes
cited for problems with dietary services.
A full 100 percent of the nursing homes in Alaska, the District
of Columbia, Idaho and Wyoming had at least one deficiency.
