An independent company has released a nursing home report using Medicare data to reveal the best and worst states for nursing home care. Among the top five states were Hawaii, Washington D.C., Florida, New Jersey, and Colorado. At the bottom of the list are Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Georgia.
“When nursing home care becomes necessary, we would like to believe facilities in every state or community are the same. Unfortunately, like other healthcare services, that’s not always the case,” said the authors of the report.
