NY Times Article, Fewer Beds for Men Entering Nursing Homes

By David W. Tate

The following is a link to a New York Times article re fewer beds for men entering nursing homes.  According to the article, nursing homes like the elderly population are heavily female.  Since Medicaid will only pay for a two-person semiprivate room, and a female will not be placed with a male, it can be more difficult for a prospective male resident to find an immediate room opening thus possibly forcing the family to make other arrangements.  To see the article Click Here.
