The proposed cuts to Medicaid imperil the millions of retirees who depend on the government program for their nursing home care services. Earlier this year Republicans proposed steep cuts to Medicaid as part of the effort to roll-back the “Obamacare” healthcare reforms. Medicaid pays for the majority of people who reside in nursing homes. Any changes to the program, without alternative funding and support structures, would rile the nursing home industry.

As obesity rates rise, nursing homes are struggling to provide assisted-living care to obese and morbidly obese patients.

Staff Shortages Lead to Nursing Home Abuse, Neglect

By Donald W. Fohrman
11 Jul, 2017
As acute shortages of nursing assistants and other health care professionals continue to plague nursing homes throughout the nation, disabled victims and vulnerable elderly people are left to pay. And while America's senior population continues to grow (currently at about 48 million), nursing homes deny care to thousands of patients, victims are neglected and abused, and patient care is being compromised. Experts warn that this is only the beginning. With low wages, lack of funding and few workers willing to perform such emotionally and physically demanding work, finding employees is difficult. Therefore, many people with disabilities and aging individuals who require round the clock care will continue to suffer.
