Brief Executive Summary
The Committee on Government Reform investigated the conditions of nursing homes in the San Francisco Bay Area to determine if they were complying with federal law requiring nursing homes to "provide services and activities to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident." It was discovered that 86% of nursing homes in California's 13th district did not meet the US Department of Health and Human Services prefered minimum staffing level and 68% of these were cited for violations that caused actual harm to residents. Moreover, the report found that inadequate staffing was correlated with poor conditions in nursing homes
