DETROIT - Inspection reports reveal what life is like inside some Metro Detroit nursing homes, and what's uncovered can sometimes be concerning.

Residents can access the critical records before transitioning a loved one into a care facility. It's also an important resource for people who already have family members in nursing homes.

The inspection reports give consumers a snapshot of what life is like on the inside of the facilities.

There are hundreds of such facilities in the state -- some get great ratings, and others have poor ratings.

The reports reveal information about the cleanliness of each facility's kitchen, the risk for falls and allegations of elder abuse.
