How Good Are Your State’s Nursing Homes?

Report: The aim of the Nursing Home Watch List is to warn consumers about nursing homes, which CU judged to put consumers at risk of receiving questionable care, and give them objective guidance for avoiding certain facilities. It is also intended to publicly name facilities deemed to have a poor pattern of performance, with the expectation that the facilities would not want to be on the list, and
would strive to improve the quality of care they deliver.
