The handwriting is on the wall now that profit-driven corporations operate 70% of nursing homes throughout the United States. Meaning quality of care is often sacrificed on the altar of profit, to the detriment of our elderly mothers, fathers, grandfathers and grandmothers. These corporations cut costs and as a result the nursing staff entrusted with the caring for the lives of vulnerable South Carolina seniors often earn barely above minimum wage. Low pay fails to attract competent, capable staff and the quality of care rendered to residents suffers.
