In a sign of the times, the New Jersey Times won`t print the name of a nursing home that has closed after a year of understaffing.
The newspaper reported last month that New Jersey`s oldest and busiest nursing home is closing its doors.
A spokesman for the Times said Wednesday that the nursing home would remain open, but would be subject to further review.
The Times reported that the closure comes after nursing homes in New York, California and other states reported shortages in beds, equipment and staff.
The Times reported in January that New York`s five-bed nursing home in Prospect Heights is closing due to an acute shortage of beds and that the home, which had over 300 beds, had only 70 beds in September.
The newspaper also reported that nursing homes are being forced to shut down because of low staffing levels, with some nursing homes shutting down because they can`t afford to replace the staff that they have.
The closure comes as the U.S. has witnessed a sharp rise in the number of nursing home deaths, from an average of six deaths per 100,000 residents in 2006 to 11 deaths per 1,000 in 2014.
A spokeswoman for the New Orleans Times-Picayune told ABC News last month there was no indication that the New Yorker`s nursing home was closing.
The hospital system in New Jersey is also in the midst of a crisis, with the New Brunswick Medical Center reporting a total of 841 deaths and 461 serious injuries last year, according to state data.
The New Brunswick Times-Journal reported in December that the medical center had been overwhelmed with patients.
