Nursing Home Citation Report Issued

The California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform has issued its 2007 Nursing Home Citation Report. CANHR has prepared a citation summary, including the name of the nursing facility, the date, the level of citation, and a brief summary of the facts that led up to the citation. There is also an instructional key to help readers understand how the individual nursing home citations summaries are displayed. The report, which is broken down by California counties, can be found here. (.pdf)

In summary, a total of 651 citations were issued against nursing homes in California by the Department of Public Health in the year 2007, 22 of which were Class AA citations (violations caused a death), and 122 were Class A (violations present imminent danger and a substantial probability of death).
