Wisconsin Madison, WI - After conducting more than 150 interviews, and examining scores of county, state and federal documents and databases, the newspaper found:
- One in four nursing homes in Wisconsin were cited in 2006 for jeopardizing the health or actually harming vulnerable residents — well above the national average.
- The state cut inspectors for nursing homes and assisted living while complaints about long-term care rose. State standards for facility staffing are below average.
