Summary The Journal-Constitution looks at why, after so many horrible stories about nursing homes have been written and told, the problems continue. This series, according to the contest entry, provides the answer: "Many nursing homes are paid enough to provide better care, but they don't because the system that governs nursing homes allows the industry to place profits before patients."
