When it comes to tests, scoring over 90% tends to be a good thing. When you’re talking about the percentage of nursing homes that were cited for violations during inspections, not so much. As part of an effort to improve quality in Medicare, the government has stiffened standards and greatly increased inspections for nursing homes. The most common violations: “improper storage and distribution of food, accident hazards and lack of services necessary for residents’ mental and physical well-being”. Looks like these facilities haven’t gotten the message yet.
