The OIG has issued a report entitled “Trends in Nursing Home Deficiencies and Complaints.” The study describes the nature and extent of nursing home deficiencies and complaints in 2007 and identifies trends from 2005 to 2007. According to the OIG, in each of the past 3 years, more than 91 percent of nursing homes surveyed were cited for deficiencies, particularly quality of care, resident assessment, and quality of life deficiencies. Additionally, 17 percent of nursing homes surveyed in 2007 were cited for actual harm or immediate jeopardy deficiencies, and 3.6 percent were cited for substandard quality-of-care deficiencies. The number of substantiated complaints decreased slightly (about 3 percent) since 2005.
