(FOX19) - More than 1.5 million Americans live in our nation's nursing homes, and according to a recent report by a non-profit advocacy group, Indiana's nursing homes are among the worst in the country.
Families For Better Care, a group dedicated to creating public awareness of nursing home conditions, looked at statistics on staffing, performance measures, complaints, inspections and more to create the 'Nursing Home Report Cards'.
Indiana received an overall grade of an 'F'. According to the report, Indiana nursing homes consistently underachieved and one in four homes cited a severe deficiency.
In addition, only one-third of Indiana's nursing homes scored above average on health inspection scores.
