Substandard nursing homes in the Chicago area have a remarkable survival record. Despite long lists of public health violations reported by state and city health inspectors, they continue to have their licenses renewed each year, even after they have ignored second, third and fourth warnings to clean up their operations.

The Tribune's Task Force reports that despite repeated health code and safety violations, Chicago area nursing homes seem to have no problem getting their licenses renewed.

No known rights restrictions.
