Editor's note: A story on nursing home quality produced by PublicSource, an investigative news group, and published by the Post-Gazette on Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013, has been corrected and updated. It is available on the PublicSource website with the most-recent figures relating to the number and rate of problems in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. The original story has been removed from the Post-Gazette website.
Updated correction: An article published Jan. 6, 2013, incorrectly reported inflated numbers for the annual rate of nursing home violations at 36 nursing homes in Pittsburgh and some suburbs. The average rate of violations is 4.44 per year for each nursing home in the area surveyed, which is below the national average of six to seven violations per home. Additionally, Pennsylvania as a whole ranks below the national average for violations.
