30. Wow! There must be a surge of old people robbing banks?

I'm being sarcastic of course because your argument on it's face is just laughable.

People do have access to comparing nursing homes.

Also, nursing homes have to comply with Medicare guidelines. If they do not there is a heavy price to be paid. Some administrators have faced jail time for abuses. This was awhile ago when nursing home abuse became news.

If a nursing home does not comply with Medicare guidelines and caring for the residents they can lose their considerable funding from the government. Their doors can be closed.

They are subject to inspections as well.

Nursing homes are not the destitute and hopeless places they used to be. Seriously, they are not. You should really take the time and visit a nursing home. See for yourself. I think you're mind will be changed.
