Why do we have so many nursing homes in the United States?
In a city of nearly 7 million, a nursing home is a large, private, and sometimes-dangerous place.
There are more than 1.4 million nursing homes throughout the country, and there are more nursing homes than hospitals, according to a study from the Urban Institute.
But there are fewer than 1,600 nursing homes for every 100,000 residents.
The reason for this disparity is not clear.
A few explanations exist.
A study published in 2015 found that a nursing facility’s staffing can vary widely among different hospitals.
In some cases, a hospital might have a higher staffing ratio because its nurses are more skilled than their neighbors’.
But the nursing home’s workforce also includes more people than it needs.
Another possibility is that nursing homes can be more profitable than hospitals.
Some nursing homes are in areas where there are plenty of vacancies, but in other cases, they have vacancies that are too high.
Another factor is that while nursing homes provide a wide variety of nursing services, many of these services are not well-known.
A third possible reason for the disparity is the lack of regulations that govern nursing homes.
Nursing homes have historically been exempt from the federal rules that govern hospitals, so they can do as they please.
But the nursing homes themselves are regulated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which is the federal agency that oversees nursing homes and their facilities.
While the CMS does require that nursing facilities meet certain quality standards, it does not require that these standards be met.
The nursing home industry has long complained that the nursing facility licensing laws in many states have become too restrictive, so many states are considering passing their own licensing laws.
And many of the states have laws that restrict who can work at a nursing house, who can have access to it, and how many workers can work there at any given time.
These laws have been a topic of conversation for years in the nursing industry, with many people saying they want the laws changed to help the industry thrive.
This year, the National Association of State Health Officers, a nonprofit advocacy group, released a report called The Nursing Home Crisis: The Under-Enrollment of Nursing Homes in the Nation.
In a draft report, the association said that the current nursing home licensing laws are too restrictive for the nursing community.
In a statement, the NASSO stated that the NPSF, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “should adopt a more comprehensive, uniform licensing system that allows for an equal access to and participation in the profession by all patients, caregivers, and the community.”
