Description

This investigation by the Detroit News found that thousands of nursing home patients die each year because of malnutrition and dehydration. The report is based on an analysis of 9.7 million death records from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and 7.5 million hospital discharges from the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The News' analysis suggests that many of the deaths could have been prevented. Related stories discuss how a nurse and aide shortage imperils patients, how instances of abuse often go unreported, and how family members can curb nursing home malnutrition and find good care.
