We hate having to share stories like this from today’s New York Times, Extendicare Agrees to Pay $38 Million in Fines for Inadequate Nursing Home Care, but it is so important for people to understand why regular and thorough investigation of extending living facilities is crucial. There are a host of ways that you can regularly check the nursing home where your loved one is residing to see if they have been fined or received complaints. We help monitor the quality of facilities for our clients and their children across the country.
According to the article, Extendicare operates 150 homes in 11 states and is one of largest nursing home groups in the United States. Whether your loved one is in a facility around the block or across the country, you owe it to them and yourself to consistently check on that facility’s records.
