November 13,2002: Healthcare Web site lists qualities of all nursing homes:"People can now get quality indicators on all 17,000 nursing homes in the United States, a new government effort to give families tools to make better decisions for loved ones. Beginning Tuesday, consumers could go to the government Web site www.medicare. gov/ or call 800-MEDICARE for information on such topics in-volving nursing homes as the prevalence of physical restraints at a facility or its percentage of residents with bed sores. Information on deficiencies found during annual inspections and complaint investigations also is being made available."

The Truth About Nursing Homes, By Jeff Danger, LPN, MSW:"Life in nursing homes and assisted living facilities is never the way it appears in brochures. The basic premise, strangers taking care of strangers, is flawed. But long-term care is all about people - there are dedicated nursing assistants, nurses, social workers, and other staff members who provide good care despite obstacles. Entering some type of long-term care is a process of change and knowledge. The more you understand how long-term care facilities operate, the better your life or your loved ones will be. Educate yourself and your family."

Clinical Nursing Case Studies:

Nursing Home Rehabilitation Stay Proves Terminal. Was Quality of Care Given An Issue?
Lloyd v. County of Du Page, 707 NE.2d 1252 - IL (1999)
Summary: Nursing homes are frequently a patient's destination for rehabilitation following surgery. Common conditions fitting this bill include large bone fractures, hip replacements and stroke. Following these acute episodes, the patients are too unstable to go home and not "sick" enough to have their hospital stays reimbursed by insurance companies. The purpose of admission to a nursing home is to help the patient regain lost function, strength and health. In this case, the patient would remain in the Nursing Home till her death of complications.

******************************************************

Elderly Patient Repeatedly Injured In Nursing Home "Accidents." Negligence, Coincidence or Abuse?
Brickey v. Concerned Care of Midwest Ince. 988 S.W. 2d 592 MO (1999)
Summary: As the elderly population continues to increase, more and more families are faced with the decision to place loved ones in nursing homes. When a family member is placed in a facility, a certain standard of care is expected. In this case, a resident was injured repeatedly while under their care. When the patient died a few days after being "dropped" the family sued.
