Nursing homes and their staff carry a heavy responsibility. After all, they are entrusted with the safety and well-being of some of the most vulnerable amongst us.

There are many different types of medical equipment used at nursing homes. The condition of such devices can have major implications for resident health and safety. So, one would hope New York nursing homes would be vigilant about keeping such equipment properly maintained. Unfortunately, a recent audit suggests this doesn’t always happen.
