Previous reports on nursing homes (NH) concluded that enforce. actions, known as sanctions, were ineffective in encouraging NH to maintain compliance with fed. quality require.; & sanctions were often rescinded before being implemented because NH had a grace period to correct deficiencies.

A random sample of 107 homes' annual & complaint surveys were reviewed that included deficiencies of actual harm to one or more residents.
