Stricter oversight, accountability and penalties for nursing homes in Texas.

Texas ranks last in the nation for nursing home care according to a May 14, 2015 article in the Houston Chronicle. "Fifty-one percent of the state's 1,193 nursing homes that receive Medicare or Medicaid earned only one or two stars out of a five-star rating system, compliled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services."  This is an abomination for any state in the U.S., much less for Texas where we supposedly do things bigger and better!  Our "Texas Pride" should shine as the brightest light in the long term care industry, not the dimmest. Our most vulnerable and weakest citizens of our great state deserve much better.
