The average number of health deficiencies per nursing home in Florida is 8.Capital Healthcare Center was cited for 26.A few things they were ranked worst for include making sure the nursing home is free of dangers that cause accidents, mistreatment, and theft.We talked the management at the nursing home and they say a statement will be released at a later time.
