According to a new study by the nonprofit advocacy group Families for Better Care, Oklahoma nursing homes rank 48th out of 50 in quality of care. Blame for this shameful status belongs at the doorstep of our voting constituency. Every two years, Oklahomans elect fiscally conservative candidates fighting to minimize government regulation of business, including privately owned long-term care facilities. As a consequence of our state's lax regulatory standards, Oklahoma was one of 11 states to earn an F for nursing home care.
