As of 2012, there were 284 Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing homes in Kentucky. As the baby boomers — those born between 1946 and 1964 — age, there is pressure to build more nursing homes, and this at a time when there is already a shortage of skilled nurses. Inadequate staffing, profit motives and changes in the healthcare laws may all produce a greater likelihood of nursing home abuse and nursing negligence. In fact, several news reports cite a rise in nursing home abuse over the past decade..
