Quality Of Care At VA Hospitals Is From Poor To Criminal

According to a recent USA Today report, the info isn’t surprising. The same conditions apply to most civilian nursing homes. Typically, while owners and executives get rich, the working staff is usually underpaid, under qualified and unconcerned about their elderly clients.

Unfortunately, the basic incentive is to keep the residents alive as long as possible, so that they continue the money flowing in from government and families. And that cost today is considerable. Nursing home care in the 1980s was typically $500 a month. Today it’s $5,000 a month, and with much lower standards of care.
