Sacramento nursing homes fail to meet minimum standards

Phillip Reese and Nancy Weaver Teichert of The Sacramento Bee used state inspection reports to show that " Sacramento nursing homes failed to meet minimum federal and state standards more often than facilities in the rest of the top 10 largest cities in California during the last two years". The leading complaints were quality-of-care, and "inspectors levied more fines for state citations against Sacramento homes than in any other city in the state during 2003 and 2004: $444,200 total, an average $19,300 per home."
