Last year, the state fined 23
Iowa nursing homes $10,000 or more for providing substandard care. Some
of those homes were also hit with federal fines and sanctions against
their state licenses.

Of those 23 homes, 16 stand to collect
bonus Medicaid payments this year from state and federal taxpayers. The
bonuses are tied to a state program that rewards nursing homes for
providing quality, cost-effective care.

Elderly abuse is a crime. If you or a loved one have suffered nursing home abuse and neglect, please contact us today or call your local law enforcement agency.

Here’s how much each
home was fined in 2007 and how much it stands to collect this year in
performance-based bonuses. The homes are ranked based on the amount of
their 2007 fines.
