6/16/08: Measuring the Health of Nursing Homes
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – End of life care is an industry - and not every nursing home is driven by the patients' best interest. In Sunday's Salt Lake Tribune, journalist Matt Canham reported on the hundreds of hours he spent combing the records of 91 private nursing homes in Utah. While many are doing a good job - the deficiencies of others are alarming. Canham joins us Monday to talk about what he's learned.
