Nationwide care at nursing homes is improving

According to a study compiled by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, more than 560 nursing homes nationwide have not improved their ratings during the 2009-2011 rating period, even after the federal government stepped in and began rating these 15,000 facilities.

More and more stories are coming out about nursing home neglect and it makes families of loved ones fearful of leaving them in the care of nursing home staff. Diligent research and active participation in their loved ones care will hopefully alleviate any doubts, but the system is not full proof. One New York family is living the nightmare of realizing that their family member was not cared for properly, and four members of the nursing home staff are currently on trial for their substandard care.

The result is now a possible medical malpractice case against the doctor for a less than ideal outcome -- thick scars on her temples and a wavy abdomen.
