The number of reported health and safety deficiencies at Ohio nursing homes has recently doubled between the years of 2014 and 2018, from nearly 4,000 reported citations to about 8,000 cases.
According to a recent report by the Ohio Health Department which regularly inspects those facilities, the number of deficiencies that caused actual harm to residents — as opposed to those that only created the potential for harm — also increased steadily over that time from 187 reported citations in 2014 to 296 in 2018.
