JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KFVS) - Just under 25% of Missouri’s nursing home facilities have not received a state-required inspection in at least two years, according to updated data from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.

Federal law requires such facilities be inspected every 15 months, while state laws require a check every year.

Though a backlog of inspections resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic is a likely contributing factor, state officials report a vast increase in the number and severity of complaints filed against facilities across the state.

Complaints have increased overall by roughly 36%, increasing from 9,011 in FY2019 to 12,236 in FY2023.

The category of complaint that saw the largest increase were those designated as “severe.”

“Immediate jeopardy” also increased by 125% over the previous year.

“These are the most serious complaints and require action within 24 hours, often requiring adjustments to survey schedules in order to investigate timely,” said Lisa Cox, communications director for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Both recertification surveys and the vast majority of complaint inspections require a registered nurse, a sector that’s experiencing a shortage. Therefore, resources are stretched all the thinner.

“Because of the increase in the number and severity of complaints, the regulatory functions of SLCR have become reactionary to complaints rather than proactive in identifying concerns at nursing homes before complaints occur,” said Cox. “Workforce challenges have also impacted this regulatory function. Each recertification survey requires at least one Registered Nurse on the team, and many complaints require a Registered Nurse because of the allegations. SLCR has had to cancel recertification surveys because of the lack of available and federally qualified Registered Nurses to complete both. We have a shortage of Registered Nurses, and there is a high demand for this profession.”
