I do not know what nursing home properties are owned by LTC Properties, thus my comments are general and not specifically addressed to this real estate investment trust. I do know, and it's a published fact, that there is not a nursing home in this country that is in total compliance with federal nursing home regulations.

Advocates for nursing home patients charged Thursday that enforcement of a federal law calling for reductions in the use of powerful drugs and physical restraints on patients has been undercut by an agreement between California and the federal government. "California's political leaders have jeopardized these long-awaited and carefully crafted reforms and, in doing so, have placed at risk the health and safety of nursing home residents across the nation," Patricia L.

State health inspectors, acting on behalf of federal officials, this week paid a follow-up visit to the center and found it in compliance with minimum standards for care, just days before a Feb. 14 deadline. "We're just so happy right now I can't even tell you," company Vice President Scott Carlson said Friday.

Los Angeles County supervisors ordered an audit Tuesday of how the county's Public Health Department investigates complaints about health and safety issues at nursing homes. Members of the county board sharply criticized health officials over a report that complaints were not always thoroughly investigated.
