When deciding upon a nursing home for your elderly parent or grandparent to reside, it is best to do your homework in order to find out which nursing homes will and won’t provide the best care for your loved one. There are several ways you can do this including visiting the facility, observing the staff and patients, and conducting online research.

When searching the Internet for information on different nursing facilities, a tool from ProPublica can be used to view the nursing homes in your area and find out which ones have been identified as having deficiencies and fines.

The ProPublica list included the following local nursing homes with serious deficiencies:
