New Jersey Long-Term Care Ombudsman

A new report by the NJ Office of the State Comptroller has found that a total of 15 nursing homes in NJ have operated with a one-star quality rating or years

A new report by the NJ Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) has found that a total of 15 nursing homes in NJ have operated with a one-star quality rating or years, some going back to 2013. The report found that all but one of these poor-performing facilities are run by for-profit companies. "Year after year, these 15 facilities are rated one-star and yet do not improve the quality of care for thousands of individuals," said Laurie Brewer, New Jersey's Long-Term Care Ombudsman. "A consistent one-star rating means the Department of Health has flagged problems that endanger residents time after time, and yet no significant changes have been made by that facility to protect residents."
