52 ‘Worst’ Nursing Homes

Posted by PKSD Law Firm on Sep 24, 2008 in Nursing Homes and Elder Rights

The U.S. Government released a list of the 52 worst nursing homes in the nation according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.  The government says the list should provide U.S. consumers with new information when choosing a home.  The list was released because a number of facilities were consistently providing poor quality of care, yet make enough changes to pass government surveys only to fail the next.

Heres a quick guide to reading the list: 

  • Table A New Additions to the list 
  • Table B Not Improved
  • Table C Improving
  • Table D Recently Graduated
  • Table E No longer in Medicare and Medicaid

Notice there are 4 Wisconsin long-term care facilities on the lists. 

  • Luther Home in Marinette Table B
  • Columbus Nursing & Rehabilitation in Columbus Table C
  • Middleton Village in Middleton Table C
  • Willows Nursing & Rehab in Sun Prairie Table C
