Report shows Texas 49th in fines for nursing home care

A report from the advocacy group Families for Better Care showed that Texas ranks as the second-worst state in the United States when it comes to fines over nursing home care, the Houston Chronicle reported on February 23.

According to the report, Texas is the second-most fined state in the country in terms of violations against nursing home care policies. It collected around $9 million of fines in the last three years, adding to the “staggering $100 million in nursing home fines” that the country garnered within the same period.

Kentucky was declared the worst-performing state when it comes to nursing home care, collecting around $11 million in fines in the last three years.
