I was told by an ombudsman agency that the state needs to get a larger quota of nursing home beds authorized. Is this for all beds or just those subsidized by the government? It's been months waiting for a "yes" from N'homes that have my parent on their list. Some N'homes lists are years long. I see new facilities being built/opened in the last year. They are for-profit facilities. Are their beds under the Cert of Need criteria? I cannot get a straight answer. My elder is in Kentucky. I will appreciate input about this state or any other, just to get a clarification on Certificate of Need nursing home beds.
