Table: Nursing Home Squeeze


Deteriorating care...

-- Six companies, representing 12% of the U.S.'s 17,000 homes, are operating under Chapter 11.

-- Some 54% of homes provide less than the minimum recommended two hours of attention a day per resident.

-- Nearly one-third offer less than the minimum recommended 12 minutes a day of care by a registered nurse.

-- Last fall, random surveys by federal inspectors found "violations that caused harm to residents or had the potential to cause death or serious injury" in homes from New Jersey to California.

...And soaring costs
