List of Worst Nursing Homes in U.S. Released by Feds

A few days ago Michael J. Keenan of The Connecticut Elder Law Blog posted this story pointing to a list of the worst nursing homes in the US by the federal government’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The homes in question are among more than 120 designated as a “special focus facility.” CMS began using the designation about a decade ago to identify homes that merit more oversight. For these homes, states conduct inspections at six month intervals rather than annually.

With only 120 on the list its a pretty exclusive club. And thankfully not a single facility in Ohio ‘made the cut.’

This list is available here.
