Worst Nursing Homes In America (2018)

When it comes to the older members of our family like our grandparents or even aging parents, nursing homes are sometimes the option. They are supposed to provide care, activities and enjoyment for those getting up in years. But some nursing homes and assisted living facilities are failing, leaving our eldery in worse shape than when they entered. The Assisted Senior Living watch list currently includes 145 elder care facilities that were given a ranking of less than one star based on a residents’ assessments of the following metrics, including:

– Patient and resident health
– Safety conditions of the facility
– Quality of nurse staffing care
– And other failures at basic quality measures.

Many of those facilities have also been cited for serious violations of administrative rules and state or federal guidelines for nursing homes. In the meantime, residents are forced to endure comparable conditions until investigators return again to the facility at a new date. A number of nursing home facilities nationally are closed or defunded by the state and federal government in order to force the offending entity out of business.
