Albany has quietly signed off on giving $850 million to be split among more than 600 nursing homes around New York state -- even though federal regulators have found the quality of care at more than two-thirds of the facilities to be below average or much below average. Of this 850 million, 350 million will be going to most dangerous nursing homes in New York State. There are no rules as to how this money has to be spent, which means that assuredly it will not go towards improving the quality of care or shoring up staffing. I believe that it will be a windfall to operator's bottom line. Shameful at the least. Please see article ---------------->
