We recently did a story at The Star Press that talked about local nursing homes and how they were rated by the state and federal government. Most of them were ranked horribly. The scores are based on a number system where 0 is the best score meaning no deficiency's were found. The state average is 174. Some of our large local nursing homes were in the 400's.
This image is from a small local nursing home in New Castle, Indiana who just adopted a black lab that now lives there. The residents love the dog and other smaller animals the home has (bird, fish). This nursing home scored one of the best in the area with 32.
