Have government funding cuts caused you to reduce staffing levels?

Reader comments:

-You talk about how nursing homes violate U.S. standards; maybe they should staff them so that they are realistic. The funding is being cut all the time and yet more is expected. Also, why are assisted living facilities not looked at when they have the same population and nowhere near the same regulations?

-Not yet, but we are evaluating now what we will have to do.
