-It should not make a difference.


-Facilities out to make a profit hold staffing to bare minimum at times and this leads to less than adequate care.

Nursing homes are are a business and they are in the business of caring for our frail and elderly. It is unfair to say a nursing home looking to make a profit provides substandard care. Like any business, a profit must be made in order to survive. I know of many not-for profit facilities that provide "less than adequate care".
